About YVLD

In May 2003, citizens in the Yale precinct successfully voted to form a partial-county, rural library district. Yale Valley Library District contracts with Fort Vancouver Regional Library District for services, which included bookmobile visits until the Clark County bookmobile was retired in June 2012. Weekly, limited library services at Yale Library Express, located at Yale Elementary School, were established in August 2012.

The YVLD board is composed of five, five-year positions. Current members are:

  • Eric Reese, Chair
  • Christina Conroy
  • Liz Kennedy
  • Tina Moir
  • Kyle Niekamp

Members meet regularly on the third Thursday at 6 pm, at Yale Elementary School, 11842 Lewis River Roard, Ariel, WA. A complete schedule can be found on the events calendar on this page, and an agenda is posted here prior to each meeting.
