Library seeks advisory board members



The Sonoma Valley Library Advisory Board is currently accepting applications to fill two vacancies. There is one opening for a resident of the Sonoma Valley, and one opening for a youth member in grades 9-12. Applications are available on the Sonoma County Library website, sonomalibrary.org/about/library-advisory-boards, and can also be picked up at the library, located at 755 West Napa St. in Sonoma. The deadline for applications is Friday, June15.

The Sonoma Valley Library Advisory Board is a citizen committee that serves to advise the Library Commission on issues affecting the library in Sonoma Valley. The Youth member will bring to the table issues concerning young people in the Valley and provide a new and different perspective. “Serving is an opportunity to bring your ideas about how our library can better meet the needs of the young people here in Sonoma Valley. It’s also a terrific way to get some public agency board experience, build your resume, and looks great on college applications” says Board Chair, Joanne Sanders.

The term for the youth member is one year, starting on July 1. The term may be extended for one more year. The term for the other position is four years. Meetings are held on the second Thursday of every month at 4 p.m.
