Mission Statement

The Flint Memorial Library is the only institution in North Reading whose mission is to make readily available print and non-print materials selected in response to the informational, educational, cultural and recreational needs of all segments of the community.

The library seeks to meet these needs by facilitating informal self-education of all members of the community using traditional library resources as well as new technologies: by providing information, materials, or referrals using local and library network resources; by enriching those areas of knowledge which people are studying in a formal educational setting; by encouraging the use of library facilities for cultural and community activities; by providing specialized programs aimed at specific age groups; and by promoting the use of all library services to increase public awareness of the library in the community.


The Flint Memorial Library Trustees meet  in the Trustees Room of the Library.  The meetings are open to the public.  To find out the date of  the next meeting, please consult the calendar.

The Flint Memorial Library is governed by six member Board of Library Trustees who are appointed by the Board of Selectmen. Current Trustees:

  • Kathryn Geoffrion-Scannell, Chairman
  • Sarah Ralph, Vice-Chairman
  • Marci Bailey, Liaison to the Friends of the Library
  • Mary Ann Lape
  • Janet Murphy
