Serve the Community. Become a Library Trustee.
U.S. citizens 18 years old or older and residents of the State of NY and the Beacon City School District for 30 days preceding the election are eligible to run for three (3) vacancies on the Howland Public Library Board of Trustees.
The election for the Howland Public Library Board of Trustees and library budget vote will be held Thursday, April 4, 2013.
Candidates may pick up petitions at the library; these petitions must be notarized and returned to the library clerk by 5:00 PM on Tuesday, March 5th, and carry the signatures of at least 25 people qualified to vote in BCSD elections.
The Board of Trustees is the library's policy-making body. A library trustee's commitment is to both the physical property and resources of the library, and to the services it provides and to the people who provide them. The library board has the final responsibility to see that its library provides the best possible service to its community. Public library trustees are not paid; they are community volunteers.
Meetings of the Board are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM. The public is invited to these meetings; the next one will take place on Tuesday, March 5, 2013, in the community room at the library.
