The library is governed by an elected six member Board of Trustees representing the Rochester Hills community, who together are responsible for the operation of the library, planning its growth, policymaking, its budget, and obtaining adequate funds. Library service is provided to the City of Rochester and Township of Oakland through a service contract. Each community is represented by a non-voting liaison at the Library Board meetings.
The Library Board of Trustees:
- Oakland Township: Michael Tyler
- Rochester: Ayana Knox-Potts
The Board of Trustees meet monthly on the second Monday at 7:30 p.m. in the library's Boardroom. (The May, June, July, August and September meetings begin at 8 p.m.) The public is welcome, and a monthly information packet is available for review in the library on the Friday before each meeting at the Adult Services' desk on the second floor of the library. After 9:00 p.m. access is available at the entrance east of the drive-up window and loading dock. For further information, please call 248/650-7127.
