    Want to Serve on the Library Board?

    Wanted Board Members
    Many professionals throughout our community volunteer their time and expertise by serving on the board of directors for library. These meaningful volunteer positions can expose you to a variety of professional networks and provide you with an opportunity to use your professional skills to help advise and guide the staff that is serving a cause you care about. Serving on the library board does enrich your resume and expands your reach of networks. Your valuable contribution of skills and expertise as a board member are appreciated and helpful. As a board member, you gain valuable experience in a variety of ways! We meet every other month (2nd Wednesday, 6 times a year) at 5:30 pm.
    Feel free to join us.
