The Board of Library Trustees is appointed by the Mayor to serve in an advisory capacity for the purpose of providing assistance to the Library Director and other municipal officials.  Trustees are appointed for three-year terms.  While the Board is primarily advisory, the City’s Library Ordinance charges the Trustees with policy setting authority in the following areas: identification and promotion of general library objectives; establishing the character and quality of books and other materials to be contained in the library collection; promoting cooperation with other libraries; providing effective programs and services to schools and other specialized groups in need of library service; and establishing and supporting cultural programs sponsored by the library.

For a full explanation of the Board of Library Trustees’ membership and responsibilities, see the City of Lewiston Code of Ordinances, Chapter 48, Article II, Sections 21 & 22.
Board of Library Trustees members may be contacted via email.
