To The Daily Sun,
An open letter to the voters of Alton:
For almost seven years I have had the privilege of serving as a trustee of the Gilman Library here in Alton. I would like voters to know that I have decided not to run for another term, and that in March, voters will have an opportunity to elect a new trustee. This is a time when good people of Alton who love the library need to consider if they, or someone they know, might step forward to run for this position.
It would be wonderful if there were several candidates to choose from. I would encourage anyone who uses and loves our Gilman Library, to consider service to Alton by becoming a candidate for this important elected position. Trustees of the Gilman Library are charged with providing leadership, guidance, maintenance, and support for all aspects of this valuable community resource.
Some of the characteristics which would be welcomed on the board include interests in special programs for teens and young adults, innovative ways to involve volunteers in the library, understanding new developments in technology, and, of course, energy, enthusiasm, and willingness to learn.
In order to become a candidate and have your name on the ballot in March 2015, candidates will have to file with the Town Clerk in January 2015. If you might consider running for the office of Library Trustee, please feel free to call me with your questions, contact another trustee, talk with head librarian Holly Brown, or attend one of our meetings.
Thank you for the honor of serving as Trustee of the Gilman Library.
