Westlake Porter Public 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, 2022. The position will become available when Jeff Armstrong’s term expires on Dec. 31.
The board is composed of seven members and has primary responsibility for 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 the third Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in the library.
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.
