The Library Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall management of the Gates Public Library. This board was originally only a five member board, but in 1991, was expanded to a seven member board with all of the volunteer unpaid members being appointed by the Gates Town Board. To be a member of the Library Board of Trustees, you must be a resident of the Town of Gates and be willing to serve for a five year term. The Board of Trustees works with the New York State Education Department guidelines in order to assure that state laws and policies governing libraries are being met at the Gates Public Library. The Library Board of Trustees is the local policy making body for the Gates Public Library. Among its duties is the appointment of the Library Director.
All board members serve on internal library committees. In addition, they act as liaisons to the Gates Town Board and the Friends of the Gates Library.
