       *Policies subject to change...  As the appointed governing authority, the Board of Trustees has ultimate, fiscal responsibility for the Library and governs the policies which dictate its operation.  The Board of Trustees employs one person, the Library Director, who is responsible for all other staff employed by the library.  The Director is responsible for the day to day operation of the Library and for ensuring the policies, approved by the Board, are followed.


The Library acts to ensure the safety of its patrons and its staff during inclement weather. All decisions to open late, remain closed, or close early will be made by the Director. Decisions will generally rely on actual observed conditions rather than predictions.
