Northland Public Library is owned and operated by the Northland Public Library Authority (NPLA), a municipal authority chartered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The NPLA and the library are governed by a Board of Directors consisting of seven unpaid members, who are appointed to five-year terms by the elected officials of the five supporting municipalities. The board is the policy-making body of the institution.
Northland Public Library is unique because it is both a municipal authority and a non-profit organization with a Foundation.
