The Northland Public Library is supported by the municipalities of Franklin Park, McCandless, Ross, Marshall and Bradford Woods. The Northland Library Board consists of representatives from each of these municipalities. The Board makes operating and administrative policies, including selecting the head librarian and giving that person charge of the day-to-day functioning of the library. After determining how to run the library, board members must evaluate results so they can change policies and procedures to achieve desired results. Board members also assist with fund-raising activities sponsored by the Northland Library Foundation.
Borough Council appoints 1 member to the Northland Library Board for a five-year term.
