The Brumback Library is administered by a seven-member Board of Trustees – three appointed by the Van Wert County Commissioners, two appointed by the Van Wert City Council, and two appointed by the Descendants of J.S. Brumback.  The Brumback Library board of trustees was created by contract (read it here) to act as the governing body of the library. Additionally, the board adopts and supports library policies.  The board is also an advocacy group, supporting the library before the budget commission, the state legislature, civic and cultural organizations, and the public at large. 

The Library Board of Trustees generally meet on the third Thursday of each month at the main library. 

If you would like to speak with the Trustees, please send a note to detailing the reason for your request, address, and phone number, and the Staff at the Library will have a Trustee reach out to you.
