Board of Trustees

The Montclair Public Library is governed by a 9 member Board of Trustees, appointed by the Mayor who serve for 5 year terms.  By statute the Mayor and Superintendent are also members of the board.  New Jersey law gives the Library Board the power to “do all things necessary and proper for the establishment and maintenance of the free public library in the municipality” (N.J.S.A. §40:54-12). It is independent of Montclair Township and was established by a vote of the residents on April 12, 1893.
