RHPL Board of Trustees
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, policy-making, budgeting, and obtaining adequate funds. Library service is provided to the City of Rochester and Oakland Township through a service contract. Rochester and Oakland Township are represented by a non-voting liaison at the Library Board meetings.
The Board of Trustees meets monthly on the second Monday at 7 p.m. The May, June, July, August and September meetings begin at 8 p.m. The Board of Trustees meet at the main library or hold meetings electronically. The public is welcome to attend and public comments are scheduled at the beginning of the agenda. A monthly information packet is available for review on the library’s website on the Friday before each meeting. If an electronic meeting is convened, information on how to join the meeting will be included on the agenda. If members of the public wish to attend in-person after 9 p.m. access is available at the entrance east of the drive-up window and loading dock. For further information, call the library director at 248-650-7122.
