The Bellingham Public Library Board of Trustees seeks candidates to fill an upcoming vacancy on the board. The position will be vacant beginning in January, 2014.

The Library Board is the governing and policy-making board for the Bellingham Public Library. Board positions are voluntary and residents chosen to fill them are selected to serve five-year terms.

Citizens are encouraged to apply who meet the qualifications, have a passion for the Bellingham Public Library, can articulate the library’s vision, and who are familiar with our community. In order to be considered, candidates must be United States citizens, residents of Washington State for at least the last three years, and residents of Bellingham for the last two years.

Information about the library and the Library Board can be found on the Bellingham Public Library website:

How to apply

Completed applications should be returned to the City of Bellingham Mayor’s Office. Applications will be reviewed by the Library Trustees and finalists will be sent to the Mayor, who will recommend a candidate for Bellingham City Council approval. Applications will reviewed as they are received through Nov. 18, 2013.

For information, please contact Bellingham Public Library Director Pam Kiesner, or 778-7221.
