I'm reaching out again with a reminder of the upcoming State Library Board opportunity. We have learned that there is a deadline of March 29th to submit application materials for a senate confirmation hearing taking place during the week of May 3rd. If that deadline is missed, there will likely be another senate confirmation hearing in June with application materials due in late April. My original message is below and I appreciate you sharing this with your eastern Oregon public library staff and board members. Thank you!


The State Library Board has an upcoming opportunity for a member representing a public library in eastern Oregon (east of the Cascades). This representative can be someone who works for a public library or serves on a public library board in eastern Oregon. The term for this position is four years beginning July 1, 2021. State Library Board members are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. The Governor is committed to ensuring that all Boards and Commissions represent the age, racial, and gender diversity of the state.

The State Library Board has legal and fiduciary responsibilities, participates in the evaluation of the State Librarian, sets policy, determines the library mission and vision, adopts strategic plans, and is directly accountable to the public via the Governor and Legislature of the state of Oregon. See the State Library's website<https://www.oregon.gov/library/operations/Pages/Library-Board.aspx> for additional information about the roles and responsibilities of the State Library Board.

To apply to serve on the State Library Board, see the Governor's Boards and Commissions website<https://www.oregon.gov/gov/admin/Pages/How_To_Apply.aspx> for instructions and complete the interest form<https://www.oregon.gov/gov/admin/SiteAssets/Pages/How_To_Apply/Interest%20Form.pdf>. If you are a library director in eastern Oregon, please share this opportunity with your staff and library boards. Please contact me with any questions. Thank you!
