Monterey Public Library LogoWhat is the purpose of the Library Board?

Unlike other City boards and commissions, the Library Board of Trustees is an administrative board and hires the Library Director and recommends the Library’s budget to the City Council.

Generally, cultural and educational institutions have similar structures to help ensure that outside influences do not encumber intellectual freedom or the public’s access to information that reflects many points of view. Established by the City Charter in 1911, the five-member Board also selects material for the Library and enforces Library regulations.
