Board of Trustees Seeking New Alternate Trustees

Join in the fun of supporting your library!  The Hampstead Public Library Board of Trustees is looking for new members.
 
What do the Library Trustees do?
 
They are the governing board of the Library.
 
The Library Trustees
  • appoint the director
  • prepare an annual budget
  • expend funds from the budget, trust funds and contributions
  • follow board and library policies and respect confidentiality
  • advocate for the library in the community
  • set policy

Our Trustees meet on the third Tuesday of the month (2pm-4pm), and three times a year with the Selectmen for Budget discussions.

What makes a good Library Trustee? A love for the Library and life-long learning is most important, as is a desire to serve your Town and be a team player. A wide variety of skills are needed on the board, including people skills.
 
What do the Library Trustees not do?
 
They leave the actual management of the library to the director so they do not
  • Select books
  • Employ staff
  • Supervise the day to day operations
 
Alternates are appointed and stand in for elected Trustees when necessary.
 
Training is available from the New Hampshire Library Trustees Association.
