The Red Hook Public Library Board of Trustees works with and supports the library staff and director in developing long-range plans and goals for library services. The Board of Trustees is governed by these by-laws.

The trustees participate actively in a wide variety of activities in support of the Red Hook Public Library. The responsibilities include:

  • Policy Development
  • Strategic Planning
  • Advocacy
  • Finances and funds development
  • Public relations
  • Capital projects

General Board meetings are at 6:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month, unless otherwise noted, at Red Hook Public Library. All meetings are open to the public. The 2023 Meeting Schedule can be found on our calendar.

Four years of Board meeting minutes, reports, financial documents, and other related items are kept in notebooks in the main room of the library. For older years, just make a request at the desk. You may access Board documents here, including agendas and minutes from previous years. To see the most recent board meeting packet, you can click here.

If you would like see the meeting schedules for previous years, you can find them here.

The Board is always happy to interview prospective trustees. If you are interested in serving your community by joining the Board, please contact Alex at director@redhooklibrary.org to receive an application and more information.
