Library Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is the governing body of the Library. They set Library policy, hire and supervise the Director and Fiscal Officer, approve the Library’s budget and financial practices, and create the Library’s strategic plans. Four board members are appointed by Delaware County Commissioners while the other three board seats come from Court of Common Pleas appointments.
