Wells Public Library Board of Trustees Meeting
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Wells Public Library Board of Trustees is composed of nine officials elected by the residents of Wells. The Board serves as the governing body of the library for the public to whom the library belongs. As such the Board is delegated both legal and practical responsibilities which deal with the operation of the library. These delegated duties are a public trust. It is the obligation of each Trustee, therefore, to know the library, its basic mission, its strengths, and needs, and to plan for the library’s future. The Board’s single purpose, as advocates of the library, is to meet the needs of the community. Their meetings are open to the public and are held on the second Wednesday of the month at 6:00 pm via Zoom. Please email Cindy at cappleby@wellstown.org for your invitation to the meeting.
