Board of Trustees

Library Board of Trustees

Meetings are typically held the first Monday of the month and are open to the public.

The Library is governed by a nine member board of trustees in accordance with the powers and duties outlined in Wisconsin Statutes Chapter 43.

Board members are appointed by mayor of New Richmond. By law, one of our members is a representative of the New Richmond School District, and another is a representative of the New Richmond City Council. Per Wisconsin statute, we are also allowed to have two representatives who live outside the city limits.

The duties of the board include evaluating the performance of the Library Director and establishing library policies.
