Questions & Answers

Why are you running for this office, whether for re-election or election the first time? Is there a particular issue that motivates you, and if so, what is it?

To represent the taxpayers responsibly. This is my second run for this position. The issue that motivates me is to get the current board involved in the day to day operations of the library.

If you are an incumbent, describe your main contributions. Tell us of important initiatives you've led. If you are a non-incumbent, tell us what contributions you would make.

Do you have a library card? How long have you had it? How often do you use it?

Yes, a long time. I use it on occasion. Maybe once a month.

Space is usually an issue at libraries. If that's the case at your library, would your solution be to expand the physical plant or make room by doing away with parts of the collection that technology has made less critical? Explain.

Space isn't an issue at this library at this time. We just expanded the library in 2009.

What impact have economic and technological changes had on libraries? How does a library remain relevant? How should its role in the community change?

It has frozen salaries and reduced staff. It has also reduced some hrs. of some employees. The libraries have remained relevant by helping people search for jobs on the internet. It provides programing for adults and children in the community rooms. Also they have story times for the children of pre-school age.
