County libraries looking for a new board member

Pierce County Library System officials are seeking a “community-focused, engaged leader” to be a member of its Board of Trustees.

Interested individuals may apply for an appointment to the board at, at any county library branch, or by postal mail at Pierce County Library System, Attn.: Executive Director’s Office, 3005 112th St. E., Tacoma, WA 98446. Applications must be received by April 30.

The new appointee will fill an upcoming opening on the five-member board that will be created by the end of a member’s term.

Trustees serve in the non-paid positions for a five-year term, may serve two consecutive terms, and help guide service by the fourth largest library system in Washington.

The approval by voters last year of the library system’s levy to “maintain services for growing and changing communities” makes now “an opportune time to be a trustee,” said Georgia Lomax, the system’s executive director. “The library is committed to demonstrate and deliver value to every community member and to earn the public’s continued confidence and trust.”

The board helps administer the overall direction and fiscal management of the library system. Input from the public has shaped a focus on learning, enjoyment and community through library services and programs.
