The Cornwall Public Library is currently making petitions available for people interested in running for the position of Library Trustee. Two Trustee positions will be on the ballot at the annual budget vote on April 18, 2017. This is a three-year term. Members of the Board of Trustees attend monthly meetings, occasional committee meetings, and work sessions as needed.
The library seeks innovative, community-minded people interested in helping guide the library into the future. Trustees determine the fiscal budget, set policy and help discern the library response to community needs. A more complete description of trustee responsibilities can be found here: trustee-responsibilities_nys-handbook-for-library-trustees.
Candidates must meet the following legal requirements:
• Be at least 18 years of age
• Be a citizen of the U.S., and
• Have legal residency in the Cornwall Central School District for at least the past 30 days.
Petitions are available at the Cornwall Public Library during regular library hours or can be downloaded here: petition-for-signatures2017
