Library Trustees

Trustees set policy for the library and approve library budgets. Their activities are governed by the pdfBoard of Trustees Bylaws (revised October 9, 2018). The Board meets the second Tuesday of every month throughout the year at 4:45 pm in the Community Meeting Room on the second floor. Board committees have their own meeting schedules. For details, please see the Agendas, Minutes, and Committees page.

Trustees must be Brattleboro residents and are elected at the annual Town Meeting in March. Open trustee seats are posted prior to Representative Town Meeting and general voting in the spring, and interested Brattleboro residents are encouraged to apply.
