Brandon elects trustees to their incorporated library, not a municipal
library. The trustees serve with other folks on the Board.

Subject: Election of Directors or Trustees to an Incorporated Public Library


Hi All, 


I hope everyone is doing well out in Muninet-land.   I know it is a busy
time of year, but I have a question about the election of library directors:


Are there any municipalities (apart from Thetford and Cambridge) that elect,
at their annual municipal meetings, directors (or trustees) to the board of
an incorporated public library (not a municipal library)?  


For example, at its annual meeting, the Town of Thetford elects directors to
the board of the Latham Memorial Library, Inc.  Similarly, the Town of
Cambridge elects trustees to the board of the Varnum Memorial Library.  Both
Latham Memorial Library, Inc. and Varnum Memorial Library are incorporated
public libraries, not municipal libraries.   


I am wondering if there are other examples of this practice out there. 


Thanks for any help you can give.
