Library Board

The Newton Public Library Board of Trustees consists of five members appointed by the Newton City Council to serve six-year terms. The Board has direct control of library operations, employs a library director, makes final approval of the purchase of library materials, has exclusive control of all library funds, contracts with other library boards for services, and is required to make an annual financial report to the Newton City Council. 

You may view the monthly board meeting agendas on the City of Newton Meeting Agendas and Minutes.
