Board of Trustees

Our Board of Trustees performs many important jobs. They set policies and procedures to ensure that the library is fiscally responsible and responsive to your needs. The board has adopted Vision and Belief Statements to aid in these decisions. The Mayor appoints board members for 3 year terms.
