About the FFL Board of Trustees

The Fayetteville Free Library (FFL) is chartered by the NYS Education Department as a Free Association Library. Therefore, the library is governed by a member board comprised of individuals who reside within the community it is chartered to serve, as determined by the NYS Education Department. Members are selected via a 2011 Board developed and approved Strategic Board Development Process.
