Trustee Candidates:

Meghann Collopy Chyla

I am running for a second term as a Cornwall Public Library Board of Trustee. It has been an honor to serve on the Board for the past 3 years. For my day job, I have been teaching English at Cornwall HS for the past 21 years. I am also the Student Government and Senior class advisor. I want to continue my work on the Board because my two school aged sons and I are avid users of the library. We see firsthand the amazing programs and knowledgeable staff that make the Cornwall Public Library such a special place!
