JOIN THE BOARD
The Hubbard is expanding its Board of Trustees to support and foster its work going forward. The Board is looking for people with specific expertise to contribute to benefit the library in areas such as fundraising, grant writing and administration, program development and delivery, accounting, banking, investing, legal knowledge, and who are representative of the diverse Hallowell community.
Board members are volunteers who serve three year terms. A Trustee participates in a monthly Board meeting and on one or more standing committees that meet monthly. Trustees have a strong interest and serious commitment to the library’s mission and in its continued operation and growth.
If you are interested in joining the Board of Trustees, please send a brief note with your contact information describing your interest, experience, and specific expertise that you would bring to the Board to: Mary Lou Dyer, President, Board of Trustees of the Hubbard Free Library, 115 Second Street, Hallowell, Maine 04347 or to firstname.lastname@example.org. A Board member will contact you to discuss your interest in the Hubbard and how your expertise and experience fit with advancing the Hubbard’s mission.
Please respond not later than Saturday, October 28, 2017.
The Hubbard Free Library was established and has been sustained over the years since 1880 through the generosity of thousands of Hallowell citizens who understood that a democracy thrives only when citizens have access to knowledge about their city, their state, their country, and the world. The Hubbard is the oldest library building in Maine still serving its original function. The Hubbard was and is a community center and community builder that connects people to ideas, people to other people, and people to the wider community.
The Hubbard fosters the creation of knowledge and is a place of social engagement and learning. Everyone in Hallowell has a story about the role the Hubbard plays in their lives.
