Board of Trustees

The James Blackstone Memorial Library is governed by a board of trustees responsible for legal and fiscal authority of the library.  The board of trustees provides input and oversight on policies, planning, and hiring of the library director.   The board also represents the Branford community, ensuring the quality of library service and advocacy for adequate funding.

The board of trustees meets on the first Wednesday of each month, except for August. Agendas and approved meeting minutes are posted on the Town of Branford’s website.
