Board of Trustees

What is the Library Board of Trustees?

Members of the volunteer Board of Trustees serve the Halifax community by setting library policies; overseeing the library budget, hiring the library director; advocating for the library locally and on the state level; staying informed about issues concerning the library; and engaging in an ongoing planning process for the growth and improvement of library services.

The Board normally meets at the Library on the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30 PM 

 Trustee meetings are open to the public.
