Ayer Library


The Ayer Library Board of Trustees is the governing body of the Ayer Library, as established by the Massachusetts State Legislature via the Library’s 1894 Act of Incorporation and as amended in 1991. Board members are volunteers and the Board operates under a set of By-Laws.

The meetings of the Board are open to the public and are governed by the Open Meeting Law.  Monthly meetings are usually scheduled for the second Thursday of each month – See the Events page or the Town of Ayer’s website for dates.

Board Meeting Agendas and 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 invites anyone interested in learning more about running for future available seats to contact Director Luke Kirkland by emailing lkirkland@cwmars.org or calling 978-772-8250 x105.
