In Ontario, public libraries are created by municipal by-laws and governed by public library boards, as outlined in the Public Libraries Act. The seven trustees of the Township of Russell Public Library Board are appointed by Municipal Council after each municipal election and serve a four-year term.

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.
