Trustees

PURPOSE

The library is a department of town government governed by a self-perpetuating board of seven to nine library trustees. The Board’s authority is derived from Chapter 78, Sections 10 and 11 of the Massachusetts General Laws. Section 10 states in part that “The Board shall have the custody and management of the library… and of all property owned by the town relating thereto. All money raised or appropriated by the town for its support and maintenance shall be expended by the board, and all money or property which the town may receive by gift or bequest…shall be administered by the board…” Responsibility for the library and personnel management, policy and collection development, and provision of library services to the public is delegated by the board to the library director. The director is appointed and directly responsible to the board, and is an employee of the Town of Princeton.
