The Sandwich Public Library District Board of Trustees seeks candidates to fill two vacancies on the Library Board. Interested candidates should submit a letter of interest detailing their background in Sandwich, personal interests, work history that may pertain to serving as a trustee and a statement indicating the reason for their interest in serving on the Board.

The Library Board is composed of seven trustees, who must be residents of the Sandwich Public Library District. On average, the Trustee position requires a time commitment of up to 12-15 hours per month (this includes 1-2 meetings and preparation). Trustees serve without compensation and must be available for regular meetings held the second Tuesday of every month in the evening. The selected candidates will serve until the next regular election in April 2017 at which time the selected candidate must either run for public election or resign from the Board. 

Interested candidates wishing to be considered should submit a letter of interest to BJ Cryer, Board Secretary by email at:

The library is offering you the chance to honor our military heroes for their courage, bravery, and sacrifice by writing them a personal letter thanking and appreciating them for their selfless service. After the program, the letters will be sent to the nonprofit organization, A Million Thanks, which legally controls the distribution of letters to military personnel overseas. Appropriate supplies for letter writing will be included at the program, including markers and crayons for pictures. This program welcomes all ages and no registration is required. The program will be held Wednesday, June 17th from 4:00PM-5:00PM at the Sandwich Public Library.  If you have any questions about this program, please contact Barb Posinger at the Sandwich Public Library 815-786-8308 x204.
