Charlotte Mecklenburg Library operates under the guidance of a volunteer Board of Trustees whose members give generously of their time, talent and support to further the Library's mission. The Board consists of eleven trustees, ten of whom are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners and one of whom is appointed by the Board of Education. The Board of Trustees hires, directs and advises the Library CEO, adopts organizational policies and an annual budget, and serves as principal advocate for the organization.
In 2020, the Library introduced its Honorary Advisory Council.
The Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Board of Trustees is pleased to announce two board vacancies that will become open as of July 1, 2022. The Trustees invite interested persons who love and believe in libraries and the work that we do to apply through the library website. Applications are being accepted through April 1 and appointments are made by the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners.
