Consider becoming a library trustee! In November, five trustees will be elected to the seven-member Bryant Library Board.

The Nominating Committee is seeking well-rounded, energetic applicants who can assist the board of trustees with the many challenges the library will be facing in the next several years. Board members are responsible for:

  • Developing long-term library policy
  • Assuring sound fiscal management
  • Serving as a liaison between the community and the library

To be eligible to be a trustee applicant, you must be a member of the Bryant Library Association. All residents of the Roslyn School District, 18 and older, are automatically members of the association.

An information packet, including Bryant Library’s history, its services, its governing bylaws and the duties of trustees is available on our website.

To be a candidate for trustee, please fill out an application which will be available on the library website at: https://www.bryantlibrary.org/about-us/board-information/

The trustee packet can also be picked up at the reference desk.

Please send the application, a cover letter and resume between April 1-30 to: The Bryant Library Association Nominating Committee, 2 Paper Mill Road, Roslyn, NY 11576-2193. Or email to [email protected]

The Nominating Committee will meet in May to review resumes, interview the applicants and select the candidates whose qualifications most closely meet the needs of the governing board. Nominations may also be made by petition.

The Nominating Committee is looking for community-minded Roslyn residents who are willing to give their time and expertise, especially useful might be those with experience in finance and construction/renovation.

From a staff perspective, board members are a dedicated group of professionals. They vary in interest, profession and age, but are united in their devotion to the library.

We appreciate seeing trustees in the building because we know that they’re seeing what we see — a busy building, alive with the energy of a vibrant community.

Please consider becoming a trustee!
