When two sitting board members of the Port Jefferson Library will decided not to seek reelection when their terms expired this year, one was filled on Jan. 23 by Harriet Z. Martin. Martin took a five-year seat on the board when she ran uncontested. The other remained open.
The recent resignation of one trustee has resulted in an additional vacancy, leaving the library board with the task of filling two open seats once again. The board is seeking applications from the public to fill these seats by appointment.
“This is an opportunity for a dedicated civic-minded person to help chart the course for the future of their award winning library,” the library announced in a statement.
The appointed seats are for one-year terms and anyone accepting the volunteer positions will have to run for the seat at the next trustee election in January 2014.
To be eligible for consideration you must be a member of the Port Jefferson Library, a resident of Union Free School District #6, have a library card in good standing and at be least 18 years of age.
Library Director Robert Goykin said that candidates can submit a brief letter describing why you would like to be on the board, background and what experience the candidate can bring to the board. You can also include a resume.
Sent your application or deliver it to Robert Goykin, Library Director, Port Jefferson Free Library, 100 Thompson Street or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Call the library director for more information.
