Library 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 six-member Board of Trustees currently has a vacancy for a three-year term that it is actively seeking to fill.


Trustee meetings are open to the public.

The Board normally meets at the Library on the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30 PM (except for August and December)
