Board of Trustees Meeting
The Wells Public Library Board of Trustees is comprised of nine officials elected by the residents of Wells. The Board serves as the governing body of the library for the public to whom the library belongs. As such the Board is delegated both legal and practical responsibilities which deal with the operation of the library. These delegated duties are a public trust. It is the obligation of each Trustee, therefore, to know the library, its basic mission, its strengths, and needs, and to plan for the library’s future. The Board’s single purpose, as advocates of the library, is to meet the needs of the community. 

Their meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month at 6:00 pm in the meeting room of the library. The public is welcome to attend.
