The Katonah Village Library (KVL) depends on the involvement of neighbors like you to ensure our services best reflect the community’s needs.
Effective trustees bring to KVL a knowledge of our community and of KVL, and a commitment to free access to information. Effective KVL trustees also bring a willingness and ability to continually assist the Director in maintaining and strengthening KVL’s services – through thoughtful problem-solving, creativity, collaboration, and an energetic “roll-up-your-sleeves” mindset in raising funds to support the library’s staff, programs, and building. Last, but certainly not least, the most effective KVL trustees exhibit the personal attributes of generosity, open-mindedness, discretion, integrity, respectfulness, humility, humor, common sense, and industriousness. The KVL Board’s credo is, “Be the Trustee you’d want to work with.”
Each Trustee on the KVL Board serves a three-year term, with a maximum of two contiguous terms. The board meets 11 times per year; meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month (except August) at 7:30 PM in the KVL downstairs meeting room, with one meeting each year held as a Joint Annual Meeting with Katonah Village Improvement Society.
