Do you live in the Cobleskill-Richmondville School District and want to see more enriching opportunities for our neighbors? The Board of Trustees of the Community Library has a seat for you at the table!
On the Library Board, you’ll share the final responsibility to see that the library provides the best possible service to our community. Board members typically commit two to four hours per month to attend meetings of the Board and sometimes committee meetings. The duties of Trustees are few in number, but they’re broad in scope and extremely important.
If you’re interested and ready, please send the library a short personal statement about your interest in serving. If you have some questions, please consider coming to our regular meeting to get a sense of what’s involved, or stop by the library any time to talk to the Director for more information. The next meeting of the Board is February 13th at 1 PM.
