Board Meetings

The Board meets the first Monday of the month at 7pm. If the first Monday is a holiday, we meet a week later on the second Monday.

During the pandemic, the Board met via Zoom and continues to do so on occassion. If you are interested in attending a Board Meeting please email and we will forward you a Zoom link and password 24 hours before the meeting begins.

Our Annual meeting is in June and at our Annual Meeting, all Members vote for President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary of the Board. Thank you to Ballston Local for hosting our 2022 Annual meeting.

Board Bios

quotation mark

On a personal note, my learning disabled son has always had a strong aversion to reading. Motivated initially by the promise of free burritos, he read no less than 42 books this summer (which is likely more books than he has willingly read over his entire lifetime). This program has built his confidence and fostered a love of reading that, frankly, I was afraid he’d never develop. I can only imagine that there are many others just like him. What a truly wonderful impact you have all had on this community!"
