Library Board Seeks Candidates

The Spring Green Community Library is seeking applications from local residents for current and future membership on its Board of Directors.  Self-nominations are encouraged.  

The Library Board consists of seven members who are responsible for the organization’s fiduciary oversight and policy-setting. Examples of particular skills in demand for new members include, but are not limited to, education, development, finance, or legal. 

Please send a letter/email to Library Director Lisa Thomas, lthomas@springgreenlibrary.org, with the following information: 

What is your profession and/or focus of interest?
What groups or organizations have you been associated with in the area?
What activities or functions have you participated in at the library?
What do you see as the library’s role in the future?
What do you feel are the responsibilities of a Library Board member?

Please be sure to indicate the areas(s) in which your knowledge would be of benefit to the Board (finance, strategic planning, legal issues, government relations, human resources, building and grounds, technology, marketing, etc.). Applications for a current vacancy must be received by Friday, September 3. We look forward to hearing from you!


UPDATE 08/04/2021: Because Sauk County is currently experiencing substantial community spread of COVID-19, we are following CDC guidelines and returning to masking for all staff and patrons effective immediately. The library board will reevaluate this decision monthly based on Sauk County Public Health data.

The good news is that, because we are masking, we believe we can safely keep the library running "normally," with seating, the Friends book sale, restrooms, Archives, and the Community Room open to the public. We will continue to post updates here and on our Facebook page: facebook.com/sglibrary. Thank you for your continued support!
