Phinehas S. Newton Library

The three trustees oversee all library operations, including hiring the director and approving the hiring of other employees. Working with the director, they develop library policies and oversee their implementation and enforcement, develop the annual budget and ensure it meets the requirements for state aid, and make and/or approve recommendations on capital and maintenance issues. Advocating for the library and upholding the library bill of rights, which promotes the freedom to read and the freedom to view, are central to the overall responsibility of each trustee. Email:
