FILLING VACANCIES
Upon the expiration of the term of office of any trustee, the mayor shall appoint a citizen for a term of five years in the same manner as the original appointment was made.

POWERS OF THE TRUSTEES
The board shall hold in trust and manage all property of the library.  The board hires the library director.   The board makes proper rules and regulations for the government of the library, and generally does all things necessary and proper for the establishment and maintenance of the free public library in the municipality.
