Board Meeting Minutes

There are nine seats on the Board of Library Trustees. Six of the nine seats are self-perpetuating; those board members do not have to run for re-election. The three remaining seats are filled through Town elections.  Elected members serve three-year terms.

The Ayer Library Board of Trustees is seeking to fill vacant seats on the Board. If you would like to find out more about serving as a Library Trustee, please contact Library Director Tim Silva at (978) 772-8250 x105 or by email.
