Trustees of the William Salt Library
The William Salt Library Trust is a charitable organisation founded in 1872 to look after the collection of William Salt.
The object of the Charity is ‘to advance the education of the public through the provision and maintenance for the purposes of study or research, of a collection of books, manuscripts, engravings, deeds, autographs and works of art relating in particular to the County of Staffordshire’.

- Eight appointed trustees.
- Four nominated trustees (one each nominated by Staffordshire County Council, Keele University, Friends of Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Archive Service, Friends of the William Salt Library).
