Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (75 ILCS 16/30-40)
    Sec. 30-40. Organization of board; qualification and oath of trustees.
    (a) Within 74 days after their election or appointment, the incumbent and new trustees shall take their oath of office as prescribed by law and meet to organize the board.
    (b) The first action taken at the meeting shall be the election of a president, a vice-president, a secretary, and a treasurer from among the trustees. The secretary shall then record the membership of the board. The board may, instead of electing a treasurer from among the trustees, by majority vote of the board, appoint and fix the compensation of a qualified treasurer that is not a trustee of the board.
    (c) Trustees duly elected or appointed as certified by the appropriate election authority or appointing authority shall be qualified to serve as trustees under this Act. The required oath shall be taken and subscribed before a notary public or the secretary of the board.
    (d) Within 60 days after the organization of the board, the secretary shall file, with the county clerk of the county containing all or a larger portion of the district and with the Illinois State Librarian, a statement listing the names and addresses of the trustees and officers and their respective terms in office. The secretary shall report a vacancy on the board to the county clerk and the State Librarian within 60 days after it occurs and shall report the filling of a vacancy within 60 days after it is filled.
    (e) The first officers shall serve until the next regular election of trustees. Thereafter, officers shall serve for terms set by ordinance but not to exceed 2 years, ending on the third Monday of the month following each regular election or until their successors are duly elected by the board. A vacancy in any office shall be filled for the unexpired term under Section 30-25.
