Board of Trustees

Cutler Library trustees are the governing body of the library. They are responsible for library policies, the budget and building maintenance. The fiscal year begins July 1 and ends June 30. 

The trustees meet every month and welcome new members and input from the community. If you or anyone you know wants a say in how your local library is run, consider joining the next meeting.  Most months, they meet on the 3rd Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. at the library. Please check the calendar at right for specifics.





Beverly Thomas
has been a trustee of the library since January of 2009.  Since then she has taken responsibility for matters regarding the library building. Bev worked as an early education specialist, coordinating the essential early education programs for both Williston and Shelburne prior to retirement. In her retirement, she coordinated the Williston Early Childhood Connection program until moving to Plainfield in January of 2007. For more than a year now, Bev has been making monthly visits to local childcare homes, reading, storytelling and sharing picture books from the library with the young children. Bev is also treasurer of the Plainfield Historical Soceity.



Bob Rosenfeld (Secretary) has been a resident of Plainfield for 25 years. Bob is the board's secretary and has served as a trustee since 2013. He is a retired professor of mathematics, most recently at UVM, as director of school-based research for the Vermont Mathematics Initiative, a professional development program for K-8 teachers. He has written a bunch of math textbooks. Bob has been a Renaissance Instructor at Twinfield and an actor in Barney Carlson productions. He has served on the boards of the Green Mountain Film Festival and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Just as Bob believes that access to a college library is a great perk for professors, so he believes that access to the Cutler Memorial library is a wonderful perk for citizens of Plainfield.
