Posted by Ariel Custer on July 30, 2018

The board of directors of the Seldovia Public Library currently has one vacant seat and is soliciting statements of interest for appointment to the board. Year-round residents of the Seldovia area who are card-holding patrons of the Seldovia Public Library are eligible.

Board members are responsible for guiding the policies and overall direction of the library as well as the management of the library corporation. They are expected to gain familiarity with current library policies and concerns, to attend and participate in quarterly meetings, to read materials provided by the Library Director in preparation for those meetings, and to respond by email poll to time-sensitive issues that come up between meetings. This is a volunteer position.

Current members of the library board are: Bobbi Sweat – President; Ginny Chissus – Vice President; Jan Wyland – Secretary/Treasurer; Karen Latimer; Greg Wolfer

Please submit a statement of interest (a brief paragraph about what you hope to bring to the library and your qualifications) via email to seldovia.library@gmail.com or by mail to PO Drawer H, Seldovia or by written statement handed to any library volunteer when the library is open.

Deadline for application is August 29, 2018.

Please allow for at least 2 weeks following the deadline to receive notification of the board’s decision.  The newly appointed Board Member will be expected to attend the next quarterly meeting on October 23, 2018.
