Library Board

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 is appointed annually.

The Library Board  is responsible for developing library policy and works with the Chief Librarian and Library management 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 5:00 p.m. 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 [email protected]
