Library Board of Trustees

The Library Board of Trustees is an administrative agency of the City of Norwalk. Seven trustees, appointed by the Mayor and approved by City Council, set library policy, approve library expenditures, and advocate for responsive and creative library services. The trustees employ the library director who is responsible for the library’s day-to-day operations.

Meetings

The trustees meet at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s community room on the second Monday of each month. Meetings are open to the public.
