The Board may make and enforce all rules, regulations and bylaws necessary for the administration, government and protection of the library and all property belonging thereto.  The Board may administer trusts created for the Library and receive gifts by devise or bequests, hold property in trust in California or elsewhere, and dispose of property for the benefit of the Library.  Since 1922, the Trustees have managed an Endowment Fund, income from which supplements and enriches the Library’s programs, acquisitions and well-being. 

By City Council resolution in 1932 affirming Robert Watchorn’s Deed of Gift, the Library Trustees administer the Lincoln Memorial Shrine.  In 2001, by City Council resolution, the Trustees also administer the Redlands Municipal Museum.
