WHAT THE TRUSTEES BELIEVE WHAT THE TRUSTEES DO
We believe in a strong working relationship with the community, library staff, and fellow trustees. Engage in the on-going planning process which assesses the needs of the library and the role of the library in the community.
We believe that the library is a place for public discourse. Hire the library director.
We believe that our responsibilities as public officials go beyond the library building. Create written policies to govern library operations and programs, in cooperation with the library director.
We believe in intelligent participation in the political process.
We believe that the library is not an island, but part of a larger municipal structure.
Advise the director in the preparation of the library budget, approve the final budget, participate in its presentation to Town Boards and officials, and actively support its adoption by Town Meeting.
We believe in building partnerships within our community.
Monitor and oversee the maintenance of the library building and grounds, and regularly review facility needs.
Speak and act as an advocate for the library.
Support legislation which will benefit the library and the larger library community of which we are a part.
Provide a forum for public participation in policies and planning for the library.
