Board of Directors & Trustees

The Rosenberg Library Association is a non-profit 501(c)3 that encompasses the Rosenberg Library and all of the services and programs it provides. Since its incorporation in 1900, the Association has been governed by a twenty member Board of Trustees.

The Board of Trustees meets in January primarily for the purpose of selecting members for the Board of Directors, filling any Trustee vacancies, plus other business brought before them. Trustees hold lifetime appointments and are residents of Galveston County. When a vacancy occurs on the Board, a replacement is selected and approved by the remaining Trustees.

The Board of Directors is comprised of nine members, chosen annually from the Board of Trustees. The directors are vested with the corporate authority for the Library and are responsible for its overall governance. The Executive Director, vetted and hired by the Board of Directors and who reports to the Board, is charged with the daily management and control of the Library and its employees. Board meetings are held monthly and as needed to operate the Library.
