Love your library? Join the San Juan Island Library Board of Trustees! The Board is seeking candidates to fill a partial, two-year term vacancy on its five-member library board. This non-paid term of office spans from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2023, with eligibility for reappointment to a full five-year term. Recommendation will be submitted by the current Board of Trustees, and the appointment made by the San Juan County Council.
The San Juan Island Library is in a dynamic time of library service. The Library and its staff navigated creative ways to provide evolving library services to patrons during COVID-19, and is successfully transitioning to full operation. Late last year, the Library acquired the old Life Care Center property on Spring Street.
In 2022, the trustees’ focus will be on passage of a bond issue in the November 2022 general election to help finance a new library building. Over the next several years, trustees’ focus will include a multitude of activities related to the new library project, including: design, construction, fundraising, and engaging the community in every step of the development process.
