The Westport Library Seeking Candidates for Board of Trustees

April 17, 2017

The Westport Library is seeking candidates to apply for vacancies on the Library Board of Trustees.  The Library is particularly interested in meeting with candidates with experience in the fields of development, fundraising for capital and annual campaigns.

Trustee appointments will be for a four-year term beginning July 1, 2017.  There are 20 members on the Library Board, half of whom are appointed by the Representative Town Meeting and half of whom are appointed by the Library board itself.  More information about the role of the Library Board is available on the Library’s website at

Those interested in applying should email a resume and letter of interest by May 12, 2017, indicating how their past work and prior experience qualify them as a Trustee for the Library, to Robin Powell at rpowell [at] westportlibrary [dot] org.  Following receipt of this material, Library staff will arrange a meeting to share information about the Library and role of the Trustees.
