The Library Board is made up of volunteer members appointed by Brockville City Council. Most trustees are members of the general public appointed for up to four years and a City Councillor.
The Library Board is responsible for developing library policy and works with the CEO to oversee the Brockville Public Library. You can review the board’s bylaws for a comprehensive look at their roles and responsibilities.
Regular board meetings are held the fourth Monday of each month at 5:30 pm at the Library and members of the public and delegations are welcome to attend. **There are no meetings in July & December. Board members may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
