Open seat on Library Advisory Board

This is your chance to advocate for the Enumclaw library.

The Enumclaw library is looking for residents interested in serving on the Library Advisory Board.

According to PhilisAnn Bodle, the King County Library System’s interim regional manager, the advisory board is the link between the Enumclaw City Council and the library’s administrative staff.

The board has five members who meet monthly, each member serves a term of five years, and “their role is really as an advocate for the library within the community,” Brodle continued.

This means helping the library get the word out about daily programs and special events, finding new ways to get people involved with the library, and inform the Enumclaw City Council about what the library wishes to do with the Laframboise Endowment, which has been used to support local library programs since 1987.

Despite its name, the library board does not advise library administration on library policies.

Those who are interested in serving on the board should send an email with a resume to Bodle at pbodle@kcls.org.
