We hear a lot of talk about libraries borrowing from the business world: Internet cafés, self checkout stations, books shelved at the front of the shelf for easy access (instead of the back to protect them from dust), people are even free to walk among the books without an escort. We do not say much about the other side of the street, but there is plenty of action there too.
Here are the 6 candidates for the 2018 Board of Directors. The board recently voted to increase the number of members from 9 to 11. 3 board members are up for reelection. Adding 2 more members, this means the 5 candidates receiving the most votes will serve on the board.
The ballots will be sent out by email in the first week of October and will be due 14 calendar days later. Each library may submit one ballot voting for up to 5 of the 6 candidates.
