Kellogg-Hubbard Library, a nonprofit library since 1895, serving Montpelier and the surrounding towns of Berlin, Calais, East Montpelier, Middlesex and Worcester.
Our mission is to empower community members to become lifelong learners by providing easy access to materials, online resources, programs and a welcoming place.
Our vision is to be a resilient, inclusive and innovative library that continually learns and adapts to meet the changing needs of our community.
The administative and program staff consists of an Executive Director, assisted by the Library (operations) Director, with a total staff of fifteen.
Our board consists of up to fifteen members, of whom a majority are from Montpelier, with at least one member from each of the surrounding towns. Their duties are similar to those of any nonprofit, since we are not a municipal library. See KHL website for Trustee Job Description and online application form. https://www.kellogghubbard.org/
Much of our board work is done in 5 standing committees: Finance, Policy,
Board Development, Fund Development, and the Executive Committee (officers). Each trustee is expected to serve on one of these committees.
Organization's Approach to Diversity, Equity, Belonging, & Inclusion
In the past two years, several groups within the Library community have examined the whole range of our programming, processes, and governance to understand and implement opportunities to fulfill our vision and our diversity statement.
Staff Diversity Committee, Board Development Committee, the NonProfit Director, as well as the full board and staff, have sought specific process guidance from consultants as well as participating in DEI learning sessions and incorporating these principles and practices in our new KHL Strategic Plan.
Board Terms and Term Limits
Board members serve 3-year terms, with a limit of 3 consecutive terms.
Frequency & Duration of Board Meetings
The KHL board meets monthly from January to June and from September to November. Meetings generally last an hour to an hour and a half. Emerging from the pandemic, we have been meeting a few (3-4) times a year in person, with the remainder via Zoom. Committees meet on average of once a month. A majority of meetings are held by Zoom.
