The Sno-Isle Libraries Board of Trustees is seeking candidates of Snohomish County residents to fill one (1) position to complete a partial term expiring Jan. 1, 2020.
The seven-member Board of Trustees is the governing
body for Sno-Isle Libraries, an intercounty rural library district serving
Snohomish and Island counties. Five trustees are appointed by the Snohomish
County Council and two by the Island County Commission.
The Board sets policies, the annual budget, supervises the work of the Executive
Director and determines the general direction of the Library District. The
Board is established under the laws of the State of Washington. Trustees
represent the Library District to the community and advocate for the Library District
at the local and state levels.
For this position, applicants must reside in
Snohomish County and be committed to the principle and philosophy of a
tax-supported public library. Additionally, Trustees are expected to support
the mission of the Library District “to be a community doorway to reading,
resources, and lifelong learning, and to be a center for people, ideas and
culture.” Trustees serve as volunteers; their business expenses are reimbursed.
Regular meetings are on the fourth Monday of each month.
