Opening on the Library Board!
The Library Board has an immediate opening for a one-year member who will finish out the term of a current member who can no longer serve. It is quite simple to apply – write a brief letter of intent to Dicki Robinson, the Library Director send by email or bring a printed copy of your letter to the library. To qualify you must be a resident of Kanab City and you must have a library card. What does the Board do? The Library Board is an advisory committee that supports the library’s daily and long-term activities and goals in its service to the community. Joining the board is a great way to become involved with this valuable community resource! Once this one-year term is completed you will be given the opportunity to continue on the board for the usual three year period.
