What is a Library Trustee?
A Library Trustee recognizes the importance of the Library in the community and oversees the funding of all aspects of Library services including traditional media and computer technologies. Library Trustees support freedom of information and the American Library Association Bill of Rights, which includes providing information presenting all points of view to all people of the community. A Library Trustee sets policy, hires the Library Director, and approves the budget to provide the very best service the Library can offer the Bloomfield Township community.
