The Orcas Island Public Library is seeking a new trustee to begin serving a five-year term on Jan. 1, 2017.
Review of applications begins November 11, 2016.
The board is composed of five members who are charged with planning the direction of library services, making sure policies comply with laws, and overseeing the expenditure of funds. The trustees also have the exciting task of working together on Books and Beyond: the Next Chapter, our building expansion project.
As the trustees’ handbook states, “Throughout our nation’s history, the public library has offered free and equal access to the collected knowledge, information, and history of our culture.” Serving as a trustee for the Orcas Public Library enables an individual to contribute to an institution that is available for everyone.
Serving on the library board requires a passion and talent for teamwork, along with a belief in the culture and tradition of public libraries. The Library's expansion project will be completed early in our new Trustee's term. We are particularly interested in candidates with the passion and skills to help us extend and enhance Library programming and services to take full advantage of our newly expanded facility.
If you are interested in serving as a library trustee, contact Phil Heikkinen, Director, at 376-4985, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Phil will answer any questions and guide you through the application process.
