The library is an association library, which is established and controlled by a group of private individuals operating as an association. Management consists of a nine-member board of trustees. It is a private, not-for-profit organization, chartered by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York and governed by its Division of Library Development. The library is maintained solely as a public service, for the benefit and free use on equal terms of all the people of the community.
Membership in the association is available to any interested party. Association dues are $5 for twelve months and payment is required in order to vote on any business of the association. A list of association members is kept at the front desk.
The association has a policy of open meetings, so one need not be an association member to attend any meetings of the association.
Trustees of association libraries are not considered public officers and are not required to take an oath of office.
Lifetime membership into the association was established at the April 2007 meeting for dues of $100. A separate list of lifetime members is kept at the front desk.
