The Board of Trustees is the policy-making unit for the library. Trustees are residents of Waldoboro who represent the thinking of the community regarding the goals for the library. The trustees are advocates for library funding and community support. The Board of Trustees supports the principles which have guided public library service through the years--the principles of equity, open and affordable access, patron privacy, first amendment rights, and easy access to electronic information.
