The Board of Trustees is the legal governing authority of the Library, and has the final responsibility for deciding library policy and budgetary procedures. All board meetings and the annual meeting of the Rutland Free Library Association, Inc., are open and the public is encouraged to attend. Dates & times are posted in the library and on the calendar.

Meetings are currently open public meetings on the Zoom platform. There will be a waiting room; no anonymous users or unidentified persons admitted; the waiting room will close at some point after the meeting begins so the admin can participate in the meeting.
