Rossland Library Seeking More Trustees
As the Rossland Public Library enters the final stages of our Library Renewal Project we are actively seeking energetic community members to join our Board of Trustees and help us lead your library into the future.
The library plays an important role in Rossland society and our community development. We have over 40,000 visits per year and rank in the top ten libraries in the province for active cardholders and children’s program attendance. Be part of a dynamic team that is a valuable part of the community, and help us make a difference.
To become a Trustee, you must be a resident of Rossland, a member in good standing of the Library, and at least 19 years of age. If you’re not a member of the Library, becoming one is easy! Just bring a piece of photo ID and a recent piece of mail with your current address on it to the Library. Everyone is welcome to apply, especially if you have skills in IT, community relations, fundraising, or project management.
If you would like to help out, but don’t want the commitment of joining the Board of Trustees, contact us anyway. We keep an active list of volunteers to draw from for projects going forward.
If you are interested in more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or just drop by the library.
Editor’s Note: In December 2013, the City of Toronto released a report on the value of its library system to the community in terms of Return On Investment. For a brief summary of the report, click here. Hint: it shows that libraries are well worth the funds invested in them in monetary terms alone — without even attempting to monetize the social, educational, and community-building advantages of a public library.
