Porter Library seeks new trustee
Westlake Porter Public Library is currently accepting applications for a position on the board of trustees that starts on Jan. 1, 2017. The position will become available when Alayne Fodor’s term expires on Dec. 31.
The board, the policy-making body of the library, is composed of seven members. The library board’s primary responsibilities are approving library policies, setting the budget, hiring a director and fiscal officer and advocating for the library. Terms are seven years with a maximum of two terms. Library board meetings are held monthly, usually on a Wednesday, at 6:30 p.m.
Trustees represent the community at large and their varied library interests. The only prerequisite for applicants is that they have an interest in public library issues and wish to become a public library advocate.
Those interested in applying for a position as a trustee may get an application at the library’s Reception Desk, from the library’s Administration Department by calling 440-250-5451 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by downloading it from the library website, westlakelibrary.org.
For more details on responsibilities of trustees or on the application process, please call library Director Andrew Mangels at 440-250-5450. The application deadline is Sept. 21.
Elaine Willis is the Public Relations Associate at Westlake Porter Public Library.
