The Library Board of Trustees has two openings for youth members. Interested applicants must be a resident of Shelburne and in grade 9 to 12 during the 2015-16 academic year. We are searching for young library supporters to help us create a vision for our 21st Century Library, and high school students are uniquely qualified to assist us in this exciting adventure!
The Library Board of Trustees is charged with supervising the Library Director, establishing Library policies and procedures, determining and requesting the annual Library budget, and guiding the future of the Library through long-term strategic planning. The Board is composed of seven residents of Shelburne, who meet on the third Thursday of the month, from 6:30-8:00 p.m., in the Library Conference Room. Occasional special meetings may also be held.
Interviews for these positions will be held at the September 17th Trustee meeting.
To apply, please forward a letter of interest to Joe Colangelo, Town Manager (jcol...@shelburnevt.org), by September 11th. Please contact Ruth Hagerman, Chair of the Board (ruth...@gmail.com), or Lara Keenan, Director of the Library (lkee...@shelburnevt.org), with any questions.

Tonight at 6:30 p.m. : Orphan Train Riders with Dan Bean – What was an Orphan Train? Who rode them? Why were they used? When did it all start and when did it end? These questions and others will be answered by Dan Bean as he reviews how he became a Vermonter because of one such train. The discussion will also cover other OTR descendants and their fates.
