Public Input and Attending / Viewing of Decatur Public Library Board Meetings via Zoom

Citizens are welcome to attend and participate in the meeting virtually via Zoom. The Zoom session will be recorded as part of the record.

Additional instructions may be provided by the Chair or host.

Providing Public Comment:

We ask that commenters please submit public comments by email by 4:00 pm on the date of the meeting to These will be read per Library Board meeting rules and time limits in the Board’s Bylaws. Email sent to this account may be transmitted to all Board members. Email must be received by the start of public comment at the meeting and will only be taken during the public comment portion of the agenda.

The link to join by computer is listed on the agenda.

Citizens do not need to install software on a computer to use Zoom. You can click “Join from your browser.” It appears Zoom prefers for users to download and install their meeting client software on your computer. Choose the option you are comfortable with and note, these may be browser specific. There also is a Zoom app for smartphones.

Decatur Public Library will be muting participants and video will be off for public participants.

Attending the Meeting by phone:

Join by calling the phone number shown in the agenda.

Callers will then be asked to enter the Meeting ID number followed by the # key. The Meeting ID number is listed on the agenda.

All callers are muted by default.

This is a work in progress and a learning situation for all involved, so we ask for your patience as we move forward. We are unable to provide computer and technical assistance and will move forward during the meeting as necessary. Thank you for your understanding in this difficult situation
