Library Trustees

The Boxford Town Library is a department of the town government and is governed by seven elected Board of Trustees serving three-year terms.

The Board’s authority is derived from Chapter 78, Sections 10 and 11 of the Massachusetts General Laws. Section 10 states in part: ―”The Board shall have the custody and the management of the Library…and all property owned by the town relating thereto. All money raised or appropriated by the town for its support and maintenance shall be expended by the Board, and all money or property which the town may receive by gift or bequest…shall be administered by the Board.”

The Board delegates responsibility for library management, collection development and provision of library services to the public to the Library Director. The Director is an employee of the Town of Boxford appointed by and directly responsible to the Board.
