Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is the governing body of the Anne Arundel County Public Library (AACPL). It is comprised of volunteers representing all areas of our county. Trustees come to their volunteer roles with a range of experiences and backgrounds, and a strong desire to ensure the long-term vitality of our public libraries. 

The Board of Trustees meets at Library Headquarters or other library locations on the third Thursday of each month at 4:00 p.m., except during July and August.

The Board of Trustees meeting scheduled for Thursday, March 19 at 4:00 p.m. at Severna Park Library was cancelled.

The Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees met via telephone conference on March 19. The agenda for this meeting can be found here.

See the full schedule of dates, times, and locations here.

All meetings are open to the public, but may be temporarily closed as permitted by the Maryland Open Meetings Act. Special meetings of the Board of Trustees or its Executive Committee may be called as needed at the discretion of the Board's officers and may also be closed to the public in accordance with the Act. Notice to the public about these meetings is provided here, as well as posted with an agenda at Library Headquarters.
