There have been some recent changes on the Board of Library Trustees. Karen Vitale resigned after serving on the Board since 2004. We thank her for her years of service. We welcome Mary Ann Lape, who was appointed a voting Trustee, after serving as an Associate. We also welcome Danielle Masterson, who was appointed a new Associate Trustee. The following officers were elected at the January 16 Trustees’ meeting. Chairman: Sharon Kelleher; Vice Chairman: Kathryn Geoffrion-Scannell; Secretary: Sarah Ralph. Danielle Masterson will act as Liaison to the Friends of the Library. Marci Bailey has stepped down as Chair, but will continue to serve on the board. We thank her for her several years as Chair. The six Trustees create policy, oversee the budget, and advocate on behalf of the library. Their guidance and support are essential to the operation of the library.
The Library Trustees held a tea in honor of the Friends of the Library, Saturday, December 1. This past summer the Trustees nominated the Friends for a Fantastic Friends Award, given by the Massachusetts Friends of Libraries. You can read here a cover letter from Library Trustee Chairman, Marci Bailey, as well as the Fantastic Friends Award nomination submitted by the Trustees. We thank the Friends for all their efforts on behalf of the library.
