Jake Widrick, Director of the D.R. Evarts Library, has announced that the Library’s budget vote and election of trustees will be held on Wednesday, October 21st from 12pm until 9pm at the library.
Three Board of Trustee seats are open for this election. Trustees serve three year terms and must be residents of the Town/Village of Athens who also reside in the Coxsackie-Athens or Cairo-Durham School Districts. To secure a place on the election ballot, interested individuals are required to submit petitions to the library no later than September 21st . Each individual petition must contain twenty-five signatures from qualified voters in the library district. Petitions are currently available at the D.R. Evarts Library, 80 Second St., Athens.
Members of the D.R. Evarts Library Board have the opportunity to contribute to a beloved community asset. Trustees support the smooth operation of the library through communication with the Library Director, creation of policies and fiscal management. Trustees act as both community representatives and advocates of the library. They must carefully consider all issues brought before them, basing their decisions on the best interests the library and the community it serves.
If you would like further information regarding becoming a trustee or would like to request an absentee ballot for the election, please contact the library at 945-1417.
