 Haldimand County Public Library Board 

Public libraries in Ontario are governed by the Public Libraries Act, R.S.O. 1990, chapter P44 and are bound by the requirements of this legislation. The Act defines how the Library Board should operate, its accountability requirements to Municipal Council and the Province, as well as its responsibilities regarding the delivery of library service. It defines the Library Board as a governing board, giving it the authority to make policy and direct the affairs of the organization.  

As a governing body, the Library Board is the decision-making and legal authority of the organization. The Board is accountable for the whole range of activity of the organization and the results it achieves, but is not responsible for carrying out day-to-day operations, which are instead the responsibility of library staff.  With a focus on the future, the Board determines the direction of the organization and decides how to get there through its planning functions. In conjunction with the library management team, the Board develops the mission, goals and objectives that will guide the library’s activities into the future. The Board is responsible for advocating for the library as an important community resource, and ensures the Library receives adequate operating and capital funds to sustain facilities, collections and staffing. 


Regular meetings of the Board are held once a month between September and June and are open to the public. Meeting packages are made available upon request, provided requests are made at least two days in advance of the meeting. Unless otherwise posted, all meetings are held at 5:00pm in the Garfield Disher Room at the Dunnville branch.

A regular Board meeting schedule is expected to resume this summer. Meeting dates will be posted as soon as they are confirmed.
