The Board and Leadership of the Library

James V Brown’s wishes included how the library should be governed, a plan that is still followed to this day. Management of the library would be under the control of a nine-member board of trustees consisting of: the Mayor of Williamsport; the Rector of Christ Episcopal Church (where Brown was a member), the Superintendent of Williamsport Schools, a representative of Williamsport City Council, and five other representatives of Williamsport or nearby vicinity.

The James V. Brown Library Board of Trustees meet at 12 noon on the third Thursday of each month in the Lowry Room on the third floor of the Welch Children’s Wing. There typically is no meeting in August. The meeting is hybrid in-person and via Zoom. For more information about attending a board meeting, please contact the Executive Director.

The next meeting of the James V. Brown Library Board of Trustees is December 21, 2023. The meeting will be hybrid, both in person at the Library and online through Zoom. The meeting will start at noon in the Lowry Room.

Upcoming meeting dates include:

  • Dec. 21
