OPEN SEAT FOR 2021 TERM
The Sherrard Public Library District is governed by a board of seven publicly elected officials who set policy, review financial reports, hire and evaluate the Library Director, and advocate for the library within the community. The Board of Library Trustees meets the third Thursday of each month (except December) at 7 p.m. at the Library. Meetings are open, and the public is welcome to attend. See the Fiscal Year 2020-2021 Meeting Schedule for upcoming meetings, and review Meeting Agendas and Minutes here. Read our bylaws for more information about the Board.
On Tuesday, April 6, 2021, Sherrard Library District voters will elect two trustees, both to serve six-year terms (May 1, 2021 through April 30, 2027). Current Board of Library Trustees President, Allen Holdsworth, will be running for reelection; while Board Member Cindy Sanders will not.
