Lead the Library into the Future; Five Seats on MPLD Board are up for Election

If you value and support your library and would like to have an impact on its future, please consider becoming a McHenry Public Library District trustee. Five seats are up for election in the April 6, 2021 Consolidated Election.

Seats to be filled: Two full-term (6 years) library trustee seats and three unexpired term (4 years) library trustee seats

You must be registered to vote and reside within the McHenry Public Library District to file a petition for trustee. Trustees are volunteer public servants whose responsibilities include: hiring the library director; establishing written policy; securing adequate funding; approving the budget; providing and maintaining facilities, resources, and services; helping develop and approve the library's long-range plan; helping promote and advocate for the library; attending regular monthly meetings; and participating in opportunities for continuing education.

Information packets, including important dates, state guidelines, and blank nominating petition forms, are available here or at our Checkout Desk during the library's regular hours. To run for a library trustee position, the state requires a minimum of 50 signatures from voters in the library district.

Completed petitions must be filed in-person with the library’s administrative staff during the filing period December 14-21, 2020 by 5 p.m. during regular library business hours. If you have questions, or for more information, please email Interim Director Lesley Jakacki or call her at 815-385-0036.
