The Arapahoe Libraries Board of Trustees invites interested residents to apply for a position on the board, a seven-member governing and policy-making board that is responsible for a $32 million budget, eight facilities and the policies for funding and operating the facilities.
Arapahoe Libraries serves all of Arapahoe County, except the cities of Littleton, Englewood and Aurora. It also serves a small portion of Adams County within the Deer Trail School District. Board members are confirmed by the Arapahoe County commissioners and the Deer Trail School Board, the two governmental entities that formed the district in 1966.
The board generally meets on the third Tuesday of every month beginning at 5:30 p.m. at various district libraries. In addition to the two to four hours of reading to prepare for each meeting, trustees must also commit to attending some library events and occasional study sessions, workshops, conferences and related meetings. An iPad will be provided for reading material.
Besides time and interest in libraries, the most important qualification is a sincere commitment to provide the best possible library service to the residents of the entire district. Experience interpreting financial statements is encouraged.
Applicants must live within the boundaries of the district. Interested persons who wish to serve should fill out the online application at arapahoe
libraries.org. Applications must be received by Saturday, Sept. 30 at 4 p.m. For more information, contact Oli Sanidas, executive director, at 303-792-8987.
