Town boards and committees are staffed by volunteers who may not be available during business hours. If you need a response during business hours, please contact the Dedham Public Library.


The Board of Library Trustees meets 1-2 times each month. Public meeting dates and times are posted at Town Hall and the Dedham Public Library at least 48 hours before each meeting in compliance with the Massachusetts Open Meeting Law. Meeting agendas will also be posted on the library's website.


The Board of Assessors meets on the third Thursday of each month, but not on even-numbered days.
