Library Trustees

The Board of Library Trustees consists of nine members appointed by the Board of Selectmen for three-year terms. The Library Director is appointed by the Library Trustees, and shall serve as an ex officio member of the Board. The Trustees have the responsibility for the care, superintendence and management of the Northborough Free Library. The Town Administrator shall be responsible for carrying out the policies of the Board and may make policy recommendations to the Board.

The property, affairs and business of the Library are managed by the Board of Trustees, who govern the library, establish its policies, organize its administration, determine its operation, authorize expenditure of funds and otherwise manage its affairs.

The Mission of the Northborough Free Library is to provide its customers with a selection of printed, recorded, or electronic materials for all ages. Materials are purchased for recreation, independent learning, and vocational and educational support. In addition, the Library provides access to materials and information in other libraries or organizations, and from remote electronic databases. The Library also serves as a center of community activity, with programs for preschoolers to the elderly; a meeting place for civic, cultural, social, and other non-profit organizations; and a distribution point for local information.
