Seeking Applicant to Fill Library Trustee Vacancy

Due to the anticipated resignation of a Library Board member who has plans to move out of River Forest, the Library Board expects that it will have a vacancy following its April 2020 Board meeting. Accordingly, the Library Board is soliciting applications from interested River Forest residents to fill the remainder of the unexpired term (May 2020 through April 2021).

A general description of the position of Library trustee, as well as qualifications and duties and responsibilities, are available here. Copies of the current Library Strategic Plan are available here.

The application to fill the unexpired term is available now and must be submitted online by April 20th.

Assuming the resignation becomes final in April, the Library Board will review applications from interested residents, and select an individual to fill the vacancy. At its discretion, the Library Board may conduct individual in-person interviews with applicants. The one-year term of the applicant selected will begin with the May 19, 2020 meeting.

Interested residents are invited to attend an upcoming Board meeting on March 17, 2020 or April 21, 2020.
