Library Board & Staff

Library Board

The Library Board is primarily composed of volunteers appointed for up to four years by the Brockville City Council. Most are members of the general public; one City Councillor is appointed as the City’s representative. The Library Board  is responsible for developing Library policy and working with the CEO to oversee the operation of the Brockville Public Library. For a comprehensive look at Board rules and responsibilities, please review the Board Bylaws. The Board can be contacted via email at
