Teen Volunteer sought to serve in non-voting teen Library Board member position

The Aurora Public Library Board, with approval by the Aurora City Council, has created a non-voting teen position.  This volunteer position will allow a teen to give input on library services and policies, and will provide excellent volunteer experience to include on future college and job applications.  The teen filling this position will be expected to attend most regular Library Board meetings.   Meetings are held in the Aurora City Council Chambers from 6:00 – 7:00 pm on the 3rd Thursday of each month except June, July, and December.  The teen Board member may also attend occasional special meetings.  A packet of information to be considered and discussed at the meeting will be provided the week before the meeting.  Please contact Paula Chapman at the Aurora Public Library (218-229-2021 or paula.chapman@alslib.info) if you are interested or if you have questions.
