Director’s Corner November 2016
Seeking individuals to serve on the Library Board of Trustees
Are you passionate about libraries and the role the Matteson Area Public Library District plays in the community? The Library Board is a seven member body of unpaid volunteers responsible for determining policy, providing fiscal and physical oversight, and long range planning in order to provide the best possible library service to the Matteson Area. The Board of Library Trustees meets on the first Tuesday after the second Monday of the month at 7:00 pm. In addition, there are occasionally other planning sessions, workshops and attendance at community meetings.
Expectations of Board Members include:
• Act in good faith and exercise diligence and care over library matters
• Attend and participate in meetings on a regular basis
• Be alert to community concerns of library service and programs
• Help communicate and promote the library to the community.
If you are committed to ensuring the library provides the best possible service to the community, consider running for election to a six year term. There is a copy of the Candidate’s Guide in the library office, or you can find it at www.elections.il.gov.
Petitions with 50 signatures must be filed at the library between 9:00 am on December 12th and 5:00 pm on December 19th. The election is April 4, 2017.
See you at the library. – Kathy Berggren, Library Director
