State. It spans from the lush forested Cascade Mountains to the upper Yakima River Valley plains and
the Columbia River.
Authority: County Board
The at-large member may serve two consecutive terms of 3 years each.
The Kittitas County Regional Library Board was established by the Commissioners in 1996 to advise them on public library services in rural Kittitas County. Membership of the Board is made up of the library manager of the four city libraries, an at-large member appointed by Commissioners, and a representative from both Thorp and Easton School Districts, which permit general community use of their school libraries. The Board collaborates on library service projects of mutual benefit, reports annually to the Commissioners, and requests County support for public library service through the County budget process. The Board also has the Jeremy Williams Library Trust Fund, with interest currently being used to purchase a children's book for one member libraries for the benefit of all and to support a local political process to achieve free access to public library service for all County residents.
Kittitas County has a total area of 2,333 square miles. The highest point in the county is Mount Daniel at 7,959 feet above sea level.
