Library Board of Trustees

The next monthly business meeting is June 20 @ 7PM in the Merrimack Memorial Room, Town Hall - Agenda coming


Current Library Board of Trustees 

The Merrimack Public Library is governed by a five-member Board of Trustees. The Trustees are elected by the general population and each serve a 3-year term with staggered election dates. Our Board of Trustees advocate to ensure that the library is funded and staffed so that it can continue to serve our community for years to come. 

NH law (RSA 202-A:6) states "The library trustees have the entire custody and management of the public library and all of the property of the town relating thereto...excepting trust funds held by the town."


Current Board Members include:

Debra Covell (2025) -

Robert Reisman (2026) -

Jennifer Jobin (2026) -

Janet R. Krupp (2024) -

Vacant (2024)

Board Alternate (1-year term) - Currently open (up to 3 positions available)

The Town Charter allows for up to 3 Alternate Trustee positions. These are ideal for library supporters who are interested in learning more about Board responsibilities but are unable to commit to a full 3-year term. Alternate Trustees may attend meetings, but are only required to vote when their presence will provide a quorum of the Board (3 members present). Alternate Trustees must be Merrimack residents but should not be current Library employees. If you're interested in applying for one of these positions, please submit a letter of interest and qualifications to Town Manager Paul Micali Candidates are appointed by the Town Council on the Trustees' recommendation.



Meetings are open to the public unless otherwise noted. Currently the Board meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm in the Merrimack Memorial Room, Town Hall, 6 Baboosic Lake Road. Occassionally business requires them to meet more often. Meetings recorded on Zoom while following social distancing and remote meeting guidelines may be viewed on the Library's YouTube Channel.
