Board Meetings

The Board meets once a month except during the summer. Meetings are usually open to the public. Members of the public who wish to give their opinions on matters relating to the library can make presentations to the Board. To do so, it is necessary to communicate your request to the Board’s Secretary-Treasurer by phone or by email (Library CEO) at least two weeks before the next scheduled meeting.
