The Board of Library Trustees consists of six elected board members. Each term consists of a three-year commitment. The board annually elects a chairperson, vice chairperson, secretary, and financial liaison. The Trustees generally meet on the second Tuesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. at the Library. All meetings are open to the public.
The role of the Trustees is to be active advocates for the library. This includes seeking local, state, and federal support for the library’s staff, collections, property and programs. Some of the responsibilities consist of the following:
The trustees have also appointed two subcommittees:
The Committee for Visual Arts makes recommendations that will enrich the cultural offerings of the library
The Music Committee provides musical events to the public through the library
If you would like to volunteer for one of these committees, please contact any of the Trustees or the Library Director. You may also consider joining the Friends of the Topsfield Town Library, a non-profit organization that is responsible for many of the creative children’s, teen and adult programming available to library patrons and also helps support and enhance the quality of library service.
