Board of Trustees

The South Burlington Public Library is governed by a Board of Trustees whose members serve renewable terms of three years. Trustees are appointed by the City Council. The Board is empowered by law with the full and exclusive power to manage and control the property and affairs of the Library. The Board has appointed, and works closely with, the Library Director. In addition, Trustees participate in a number of standing and special purpose committees of the Board. All meetings of the Board of Trustees and its committees are open to the public.

Trustee terms end in July. If you would like to join us and lead the library into the future, submit your application here in the spring.
A Library Trustee "Works closely with Library Director and other trustees to guide policy development, ensure the library is meeting its mission, address community needs, advise on budget (financial skills a plus), and help grow community engagement and use of the new library. Meets once a month and serves on subcommittees and is actively engaged in fundraising."
