The Board of Trustees is the legally designated governing board for the Morgantown Public Library System. They are responsible for the overall welfare of the library and meeting the needs of the community it serves. The Board’s responsibilities are defined by West Virginia Code, Chapter 10 and the Administrative Rules. Duties include establishment of library policies, fiduciary oversight, and hiring the library’s executive director. Volunteer Board members are appointed for a five year term by Morgantown City Council. All meetings are open to the public.
