Applications are currently being accepted for three Library Advisory Board positions: youth, Bethel Branch, and at-large.
The Library Advisory Board provides input and advises the library on policy, services, and development. Board members build community support and act as advocates for the library's services. There are eight positions on this committee:
- Three at-large positions
- Two representing branch service areas (one each for Bethel and Sheldon neighborhoods)
- One youth representative (must be 25 years or under)
- One representative for the Eugene Public Library Foundation Board
- One representative for the Friends of the Eugene Public Library Board
Members serve three year terms and are eligible to be appointed for two consecutive terms. The exception is the youth representative who serves a one-year term and is eligible to be appointed for a maximum of three consecutive terms. Those appointed by the Foundation and Friends boards serve at the direction of their respective organizations and have no fixed terms.
The Library Advisory Board meets every other month.
Apply for the Library Advisory Board through April 15. Questions? Contact Will O’Hearn, Library Director: 541-682-5363.
