(Greeley– May, 2018) – The High Plains Library District Board is accepting applications to fill two open positions on the Library Board of Trustees. The application deadline is October 5, 2018. Both terms begin January 1, 2019 and ends December 31, 2023.
This is a governing board which determines the policies of the library in relation to community needs, requires proper standards be maintained, provides adequate financing for the library operation and provides necessary buildings and equipment for activities of the library.
While there are no statutory requirements regarding residency, it was the intent at the time the district was created that each jurisdiction have representation. The areas needing representation include:
- Region 2. Fort Lupton, Hudson, Keenesburg, and LaSalle
- Region 4. Greeley, Evans, and Garden City
The Board typically meets twice a month, the first and third Mondays of each month at 5 or 6pm. Meeting locations rotate among all of the libraries in the District. In addition, Board members are involved with some task force / committee work and fundraising, as well as help with and attend special events. Board positions require a commitment of at least 10 hours per month.
Applications are available online at http://www.mylibrary.us/board/ or by contacting Kathy Webb at 970- 506-8588. Applications will be accepted until 5:00 p.m., October 5, 2018. For more information contact Kathy Webb at 970-506-8588..
