The Whitman County Rural Library District Board of Trustees will have a vacant seat beginning…
The Whitman County Commissioners recently appointed Ronda Penwell to the Whitman County Library Board of Trustees. Penwell will be filling Position 4 which was previously held by Bob Bates who served two consecutive terms for a total of 10 years.
Penwell teaches at Colfax High School and is an avid user of the library along with her family. She joins Heather Lustig, Suzanne Schmick, and Steve Balzarini on the library board. Position 2 is currently vacant, and the board is accepting applications. The district is especially focused on finding residents from the northern, eastern and southeastern regions of Whitman County but all applicants will be considered for current and future openings.
Library board members must live within the library district and are not paid. The board is responsible for governance of the entire district, which includes 14 branch locations throughout Whitman County, excluding Pullman.
The next Board meeting is Tuesday, March 16 at 4pm and the public is welcome to join by Zoom. Contact the library for logon information.
Community members interested in serving on the Library Board are asked to submit a letter of interest, resume and/or other pertinent information to: Board of Trustees, Whitman County Library, 102 S. Main Street, Colfax, WA 99111. If you have questions, contact Kylie Fullmer, Library Director, at 509-397-4366 .
