Love Your Library? Consider Becoming a Board Member

The library has an opening for a trustee effective July 1, 2018. If you support your library and would like to get more involved in its future, please consider this opportunity. Information packets are available at the Checkout Desk, or you can call our Director, Jim Scholtz, at 815-385-0036. Trustees must live in the library's district and be registered voters. These volunteers establish library policy, approve the budget, supervise the director, help develop the library's long-range plan, help promote the library, attend monthly meetings and participate in opportunities for continuing education.
