The Library Board meets on the third Monday of each month at 5 p.m. in the Library Community Room 2 (unless otherwise noted) with the exception of holidays.
The Library Board is comprised of five members which are appointed by the Mayor and approved by City Council as established by Council Resolution Numbers 11-111, 11-112, and 11-113. One member is appointed to serve as Romulus city council representative and one is appointed to represent Huron Township. Members serve either a one-year, two-year, three-year, four-year, or five-year term. The city council representative serves a four-year term that corresponds with their term in office. Interested persons notify the Board of their desire to serve. Upon receiving Board approval, they notify the Mayor in writing of their interest in serving. Mayor appoints members with City Council approval. Huron Township representative also notifies the Huron Township Supervisor for approval of the appointment prior to notifying the Mayor.
The Library Board has ultimate authority and responsibility for governing, controlling, and monitoring the business and affairs of the Romulus Public Library. The Library Board may delegate such authority, as it deems proper. Policies adopted by the Library Board are binding on its officers, agents, employees, and committees. The Board is responsible for hiring and evaluating the Library Director, monitoring and evaluating the overall effectiveness of the library, setting library policies, reviewing and adopting the annual budget, developing long-term planning, advocating for the library, communicating regularly with the Director, and conducting the affairs of the board at regularly scheduled meeting.
