The mission of the Boulder City Library District is: The Boulder City Library strives to strengthen our community through access to information, entertainment and ideas, with a special mission to inspire a love of reading and learning.
We are looking for people who are interested in serving on the Boulder City Library Board of Trustees. The board is a five-member board, appointed by the Clark County Commissioners. We have one opening at present, and will have another opening in May, 2014. These are volunteer positions.
To be eligible to be a trustee, you must live in Boulder City. The Board of Trustees meet on the third Wednesday of each month except in May when the trustees meet on the third Thursday. Our meetings are relatively short, and attendance is expected at every meeting.
The board is responsible for approving expenses and setting policy for the Library. For more information about the job, you may wish to attend a board meeting and take a look at the Nevada State Library Trustee Handbook: http://nsla.nevadaculture.org/dmdocuments/trusteehandbook2006.pdf
