@$ID/[No paragraph style]:The Grayslake Area Public Library District is seeking applicants to fill a vacancy on the board created by the recent death of a veteran trustee. Kent Rich, who was 81, died Sept. 3 after 42 years on the board, library Director Roberta Thomas said. The vacancy is to be filled until a trustee is elected by the voters in the April 2013 election. The appointee is eligible to run in the election. Potential candidates must be residents of the library district. This is an unpaid position. Primary responsibilities of a trustee are to determine the library’s role in the community and set goals, adopt written policies governing the library operations and ensure adequate funding to provide services to patrons. Applications are available at the circulation desk and on the library’s website. Applications will be accepted until Oct. 11. For information, call Thomas at (223) 5313 x205.Copyright © 2013 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
