There will be two openings for the Worcester Public Library board for next year.
If you’re interested in applying, the city clerk will need to receive your letter of intent and resume to by Friday, November 15 at noon.
For more information about the process, please read this flyer.
If you have any questions about the process, send Jim an email.
The Friends of Worcester Public Library is also looking for two at-large members for its board. We’re looking for folks who can attend one meeting a month (third Tuesday of the month at 4pm) and who are also willing to volunteer their time in book sorting, book sales, or the bookstore/cafe. Please send me an email if you are interested and I’ll have someone get in touch with you.
If you aren’t interested in serving on our board, but are interested in volunteering for the Friends (book sorting, book sales, bookstore/cafe, and other activities), please leave a comment or come on down to the Food for Thought Cafe in the main branch and express your interest!
And — in case you were wondering — yes, we always need books and magazines for the Give and Take bookcase at Union Station.
Due to my schedule, I haven’t been able to attend the Worcester Public Library board meetings for months. However, Jim Kersten has sent me the following:
WPL Head Librarian’s Accomplishment Report – June-August
WPL Strategic Plan 2013-2016 – final draft
WPL Strategic Plan – Action Plan
WPL Head Librarian’s Accomplishment Report – September
(I haven’t had a chance to read any of these documents — but please leave a comment if you have questions and I’ll try to find answers.)
