Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is comprised of eight members, who are elected for two-year terms. The Board of Trustees is responsible for overseeing the Management Team, as well as approving major purchases or changes in Library policies. The Board members elect a Chair, Vice Chair, and Secretary from among the Trustees. To contact Board Members, send an e-mail to the Library and put "Board of Trustees" in the subject line.

Note: Minutes from the Board of Trustees meeting are in a notebook in the Library.

2016 Board of Trustees

Board meetings are open to all Library members in good standing.

Management Team

The Management Team is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the library. Members attend monthly meetings and perform or delegate duties for a specific Management Team position. As a team, we generate income, recruit new members and librarians, prepare the budget, analyze monthly financial reports, prepare the business plan, protect the library’s assets, and provide patron/customer service. To contact a member of the Management Team, send an e-mail to the Library and put the name of the Management Team position (such as Bookstore Manager) in the subject line.

The Management Team, which reports to the Board of Trustees, is comprised of the following positions:


Typically, librarians work a 6-hour day on the same day every week or every other week. If you would like to work less than that, we still need you. We provide training and schedule two librarians to work at the same time so you will be paired up with a more experienced librarian. Time can be spent doing personal research if a patron does not need help or if there are no other library duties to be performed.
