Bethlehem Public Library takes very seriously its responsibility to serve the community by providing access to resources and programming that enhance the quality of life of our residents. Our trustees make this possible through their dedication and vision, and they fill a very important public service role that affects every tax-paying resident, whether that person has stepped foot in the library or not.

Board meetings are held at the library monthly and are open to the public. Meetings begin at 6 p.m. and last about two hours. Trustees are expected to regularly attend. Trustees also serve on committees that meet on schedules that fit their related functions.

If you have additional questions about the role and expectations of a board trustee, please e-mail Library Director Geoff Kirkpatrick or Board President Mark Kissinger at
