The Dolores Public Library Board of Trustees is seeking new members.

The Board of Trustees is the governing body of our Dolores Public Library. Its function is to determine and evaluate policy, hire and evaluate the director, and ensure the physical, operational and financial well being of the library currently and into the future. In addition, and just as significantly, it must assess and respond to the changing needs of the community. It is an exciting time, as libraries are now providing new and innovative programs for their constituencies.

In addition to believing strongly in the role the library plays as a member of the Dolores community, we are also seeking trustees with one or more of the following types of experience:

  • Parent of child in the Dolores School System
  • Teacher or staff in the Dolores School System
  • Business owner or employee in Dolores
  • Past experience working for or serving on the board of non-profit organizations
  • HR and/or financial training and experience – professionally or as a volunteer
  • Knowledge of the needs of the Dolores community

The Board meets at 6:00 pm on the second Tuesday of each month, along with the executive director.  Meetings typically last two hours.  Most trustees spend about four hours a month on trustee-related responsibilities.  

Two positions are available.  A trustee must be a resident in the Dolores Library District.  Terms are three years and start in January of each year.  If you would like to learn more about what’s involved with serving as a trustee, ask Sean Gantt, Library Director, to have the Board President call you.  A letter addressed to the Board of Trustees expressing interest and including some background information may be dropped off at the library.  After review, you will be asked to observe a Board meeting, where you may ask questions of the trustees.  Once approved by the Board, your appointment must also receive the pro forma approval of the Dolores Town Board and the Dolores School Board. 

Questions? Call (970) 882-4127 and ask for Sean Gantt, Library Director
