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’.

Since 1994 the Trust has received considerable support from Staffordshire County Council for the maintenance of the Library. The Library is run in conjunction with the Archive Service.

The trust comprises twelve trustees made up of:

  • 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).
  • One ex-officio trustee (a representative from the Salt family).
