Description of Organization and Function

The Maitland Public Library, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, has served the residents for over 120 years, in the current location since 1907. In 1973, a 99-year lease was signed with the City of Maitland. The City agreed to provide adequate funding for the library, taking ownership of the property with the Board of Trustees providing management of operations.

A four (4) member corporate board and an eleven (11) member Board of Trustees, all of whom are Maitland residents and volunteers, selected for the interest and dedication to the Library’s vision and mission, oversee the operations. Board meetings are held monthly (except July & August) to direct library activities, provide financial oversight, and guide operations in developing and providing effective services for the residents of Maitland. Day-to-day operations are delegated to the Director of Library Services, hired by the Board.

An annual meeting of the membership of the corporation is held in October. Library cardholders in good standing have membership in the corporation.
