Library Boards of Trustees

The Craven-Pamlico Regional Library Board of Trustees is appointed to set policies and oversee the operation of the Library. Trustees receive no payment for their service. The Trustees Regional Board meets the third Tuesday quarterly.  The meetings are open to the public. The meeting agenda includes an opportunity for audience members to address the Board.


CPRL has an advisory board at each library location. Advisory boards are composed of accomplished experts offering innovative advice and dynamic perspectives who advise the Regional Board on budgetary and policy decisions. Meeting quarterly, CPRL advisory boards provide strategic direction, guide quality improvement, and assess program effectiveness for the library they represent.
