The Columbia County Rural Library District Board of Trustees announces an opening on the County Library Board of Trustees. The County Library Board is taking applications for anyone who is interested in a five-year term as trustee beginning April 1, 2013. Applications must be received by Chair Tanya Patton at the Columbia County Rural Library District by January 4, 2013. Applicants will be interviewed by the Library District Board of Trustees at their regular meeting in February. One person’s name will then be recommended to the Columbia County Commissioners for appointment. The term for the incumbent trustee, who is completing a term for a trustee who resigned, will expire March 31, 2013. The incumbent trustee will be applying for her own first full five-year term.
