Library District Accepting Applications for Board of Trustees Member

Colorado Springs, Colo. (July 12, 2011) – Citizens interested in serving on Pikes Peak Library District’s Board of Trustees may now apply for a vacancy on the board.

The Pikes Peak Library District Board of Trustees is a seven-member volunteer board responsible for setting library policies, setting the library’s budget, and hiring an executive director to oversee the operation of the library district. PPLD serves all of El Paso County except the city of Manitou Springs and Widefield School District 3.

The term of office is five years; vacancies are also filled for the remainder of an unexpired term. Board members may serve for no more than two terms. One or two trustee terms expire annually. This ensures continuity, yet allows for the regular introduction of new board members. Board members are appointed jointly by the Colorado Springs City Council and El Paso County Commissioners.

One of the seven members of the Pikes Peak Library District Board of Trustees will complete his second five-year term on December 31, 2011. To ensure a full Board when 2012 begins, the Pikes Peak Library District Board of Trustees is asking for applications to serve on the Pikes Peak Library District Board of Trustees in the vacated seat.

Board responsibilities for the applicant selected will begin on January 1, 2012.

Applications must be postmarked by noon on August 12, 2011 and should be mailed to:
Pikes Peak Library District
Board Applications
PO Box 1579
Colorado Springs, CO 80901

Applications are available at PPLD’s website at ppld.org. Please follow this link to the application form and position description: http://ppld.org/sites/default/files/whatsnew/PPLDBoardofTrusteesApplicat...

Any questions concerning meeting commitments, times, or general trustee responsibilities may be directed to PPLD Executive Director Paula Miller at (719) 531-6333, x2010.

Pikes Peak Library District was founded in 1903. It is a nationally recognized system of public libraries serving a population of more than 535,000 in El Paso County, Colorado. PPLD’s fourteen libraries, online resources, and mobile library service make it a vital force for individual and community transformation.
