Want to become a Library Trustee and Join the SMRLD Board of Directors?

The Six Mile Regional Library District Board of Trustees is seeking candidates to fill vacancies on our seven-member Board, which sets the library’s tax levy and budget as well as library policies.   Since 1990, when the library became a district, the board has levied taxes for the purposes of maintaining a library for District residents.  The library derived 95% of its operating revenue from property taxes in fiscal year 2017.

Candidates may be selected to be interviewed by the Board.  The appointment of the individual chosen starts this spring and runs through April 2019.  Both positions will be up for election during the general consolidated election process in the spring of 2019; one for a six-year term and one to complete the remaining two-year term. At this time, the Board prefers to appoint a candidate who seriously considers running for election in 2019.
