At this time we have an opening on the library board. If you live in the city and have a love of libraries, please consider putting your name in for consideration. Just leave your name and number with one of the librarians. The Library board meets once a month. Members create and review policy, they help create the budget and make other spending decisions, they hire the director, they act as a library and literacy advocate, and they help direct the future of the library by voicing the community's needs. It's a great way to have a positive impact. Please know that living inside the city limits is a very important criteria that must be met for this position.
