Library Trustee Sought

A seat on the Porter Public Library Board of Trustees will be open as of December 31, 2014.
Trustees represent the community at large and their varied library interests. The only prerequisite for applicants is that they have an interest in public library issues and wish to become a public library advocate. The Board, the policy-making body of the library, is composed of seven members who serve overlapping seven-year terms.
The library’s service jurisdiction is Westlake school district. The public library is a separate political subdivision, apart from the City of Westlake and the Westlake City Schools, with an autonomous board of trustees. However, since Westlake Porter Public Library is a school district library, trustees are appointed by the Westlake Board of Education.
