The mission of the Boylston Public Library is to provide an enriching environment and diverse resources to the residents of Boylston. We bring our community together by actively connecting them to free and open information, technology, social engagement, discovery, and sharing.
Who We Are
The library is governed by a six-member elected Board of Library Trustees and managed by a Director. The Trustees oversee the establishment of a mission and vision, help determine policies that govern the library, and overseeing the management as well as the physical space. The Trustees manage building maintenance and renovation projects, monitor budgets, and assist with strategic and long-range planning. Trustee meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at 6pm.
The Boylston Public Library Foundation, Inc. raises funds to support the current activities and long term goals of the library as a community hub, including the enhancement of the physical space and the adoption of new technologies.
The Friends of the Boylston Public Library are a non-profit organization that helps promote and support all material and cultural library resources.
