The Trustees of Morrab Library are proposing a significant change in its governance arrangements which will be presented to members at an Extraordinary General Meeting on 13th November – we hope you will be able to attend. In tandem with this exercise, we are looking to appoint a number of people to strengthen the Board of Trustees.

Our priority is to find a new Treasurer.  In recent years we have improved our financial systems and we seek someone with experience in finance to take over this essential role, to provide financial oversight and planning.  Further information on this role is available here: The Morrab Library Treasurer

We are also seeking people with skills and attributes to complement other Trustees in the following areas:-

  • fundraising and reputation management
  • building maintenance and development

The Trustees meet monthly, either by Zoom or in person. Sub Committees are in place to support the Board – and working groups are occasionally formed for specific purposes.

More information about the Library and the current Trustees can be found here: 

If you are interested in joining us, or if you know someone who might be, we should be delighted to hear. Please send a short CV (no more than two pages) together with a covering letter of application outlining what you can contribute and why you wish to serve as a Trustee.

Responses should be sent by email to as soon as possible. If you would like an informal discussion with one of the Trustees before expressing an interest please write to the same email address with a brief summary of your relevant experience.

If you use social media and can share this information with your followers to help us expand the search please share the links you’ll find on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
