Library looks for rural trustee
The Washington Free Public Library is seeking a new rural trustee to serve on the board beginning Jan. 1, to complete a term that would end June 30, 2018. The board meets on the second Thursday of every month at 4 p.m. Board members should be a member in good standing with the library. The board is composed of seven members appointed by the mayor, charged with overseeing the library’s services, policies, planning, and expenditures.
Serving on the board requires a person who is proficient in teamwork and possesses knowledge of the community. The recruit must be willing to contribute time and skills to the advocacy and betterment of the library with the goal of maintaining and improving library services. While serving on the board, trustees will be working with a diverse group of people while creating connections with library staff and patrons.
If you have passion, intellectual curiosity, and are eager to help us reach our long-term goals and live out our mission statement, please apply by filling out the Trustee form on the Web site at <www.washington.lib.ia.us> or picking up a form at the library. Please note that this specific opening is for a rural resident of Washington County, and that in order to keep the state-required gender balance of the board, preference will be given to a male candidate.
If interested in serving as a Library Trustee, please contact Library Director Debbie Stanton at 319-653-2726 or <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
