The Library seeks a new trustee
The Orcas Island Library District is seeking a new trustee to begin serving a five-year term on Jan. 1, 2018. The board comprises five members who plan the direction of library services, make sure policies are appropriate, and oversee the expenditure of funds. The trustees also have the exciting task of re-envisioning services and resources, having completed Books and Beyond: the Next Chapter, our building expansion project.
Review of applications will begin on October 20, 2017. If you are interested in serving as a library trustee, please look at the full announcement at www.orcaslibrary.org, or contact Phil Heikkinen, Director, at 376-4985, or email@example.com
