The Greenburgh Public Library Board of Trustees is a body of seven to nine persons empowered by State Education Law to act as the governing body of the Library.
The Board’s specific list of legal responsibilities includes:
- determining the goals and objectives of the library in order to plan and carry out library services
- determining and adopting written policies to govern all aspects of the operation of the library
- preparing an annual budget and having exclusive control of all funds appropriated by the Town Board or given to the library through gifts, bequests, contracts, grants or awards
- hiring a Library Director and a competent staff to administer its policies and carry out its programs
The Town Board approves the operating funds of the library and is represented on The Board by one Town Council liaison member. The Board of Trustees recommends members to be appointed by the Town Board. The members elect officers of the Board each year.
The Board meets the fourth Tuesday of each month (unless otherwise noted) at 6:30pm. The meetings are open to the public, agenda and minutes are posted on the library website below.
