The Library Board’s role is to see that the Library is well managed in a manner consistent with the policies that they have established. The duties of the library trustees are few in number, but broad in scope. They require the ability to select a qualified library director, to develop sound policies, to assure money management, to be good public relations representatives – strong library advocates, and to plan and evaluate established goals.


Board of Trustee meetings are scheduled for the second Thursday of each month in 2020. Public notice of all meetings are posted in The Record and Ridgewood News. The Emerson Public Library Board of Trustees complies with the requirement of the State of New Jersey’s Open Public Meetings Act.

All meetings are held at 7:30 pm in the  Library Meeting Room.
