Seeking New Board Members

The library is seeking individuals to serve on the Board of Directors with terms beginning in May 2013.  Applications are available at the library.

The library board meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 4:00 PM, in the meeting room on the second floor of the library. The 12 person board includes 10 members elected by the Franklin Library Association (a non-profit organization established with the purpose of maintaining a library to serve the Franklin area), one member appointed by the City of Franklin, and one member appointed by the Franklin Area School District.  Elected members serve a three-year term and may be re-elected for a second three year term.  The next election takes place on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 5:00 PM.

The Board of Directors is responsible for securing adequate funding for the library, setting policies, and evaluating the Library Director.  Each board member is expected to actively participate in one or more committees of the board.

Interested parties should contact Debbie Oaks, Library Director, for further information or to obtain an application for consideration.  Stop by the library, call 432-5062, or email director {at} franklinlibrary {dot} org.  Completed applications should be submitted by March 18, 2013.
