Public Participation in Library Decision Making

Citizens are welcome at any open meeting of the library board either as observers or to present information and concerns to the board. Library board meetings will be held in compliance with the New Jersey Open Public Meetings Act. Library administration and the board welcome written documentation to support or restate information and concerns, but written documents are not required.

Telephone calls, letters, and visits to the library director are encouraged and the director maintains an open door policy. Appointments to meet with the director are encouraged. The library director or appropriate staff will respond to letters and telephone calls within five workdays. Comments placed in the library's suggestion box will receive a personal response, if desired. Comments of general interest may also be addressed in the library newsletter.
