Board of Trustees

About the Library Board of Trustees

The Penn Area Library is governed by a seven-member volunteer Board of Trustees, all of whom must be residents of Penn Township who have attained the age of twenty-one (21) years. An individual is appointed to the Board of Trustees only after being approved by the Board of Commissioners of the Township of Penn. To apply for membership on the Board of Trustees, please contact the Penn Township Municipal Office for more information.

Library trustees are appointed for a term of three years. Officers are elected by the Library Board of Trustees at the last meeting of the calendar year of even years to take office at the first meeting of the following year. Officers serve a term of two (2) years.
