Board of Directors

The W&M Libraries Board of Directors is a group of 20 supporters who are guided by the vision and goals of the Library as articulated by the Dean of University Libraries.  They work to secure funding and publicity for W&M Libraries, not only by their work in the libraries but by sponsoring events around the country. The Board meets twice a year, generally in conjunction with College-wide events. Just as the library is the heart of a great university, so the Board is the heart of this great library.
