Due to a facilities issue, the Brookline Room is currently closed and its materials are unavailable.



The Board of Trustees consists of 12 local residents who are elected to three-year terms of office.  Each year, four Trustees are elected to the Board.  Working closely with the Director of the Library, the Trustees provide oversight of the library budget, its services and policies.
