Our Library Board of Trustees has an opening for a new member!
The Augusta Public Library Board of Trustees meets the third Monday of each month at 4:30 p.m. In addition to regular board meetings, there may be several public meetings called by the Board President or Library Director. Your attendance at all meetings is very important. The term of office is four years, with the eligibility of being appointed for a second four-year term.

- Set policies
- Hire the director
- Plan for the future of the library
- Monitor and evaluate the overall effectiveness of the library
- Advocate for the library in the community and advocate for the community as a member of the Library Board.
