The Lansing Community Library has three open seats (3-year terms) on the Board of Trustees beginning June 2018. If you are interested in becoming a library Trustee, please stop in at the library or call 533-4939 for information. Library trustees are powerful advocates for libraries. Through the coordination, hard work, and determination of trustees, new libraries have been built, budgets have been restored and increased, and new respect has been generated for the powerful role libraries play in communities and on campuses. As part of a trustee board, trustees serve on a volunteer basis, can be elected or appointed to a library board for a period of time, and are tasked with the duty of helping to direct the funds and policies of an institution.
In general, the library board of trustees
has a role in determining the mission of the library, setting the policy that governs the library,
hiring and evaluating a library director, and overseeing the general management of the library. This role varies with every library system. For specifics on the role your board of trustees has, contact your local library.
Photographyby Carl Schofield ON DISPLAY FEBRUARY 2018 Carl Schofield’s interest in photography dates back to his teens and now, in retirement, he is able to pursue what was once a hobby as a true avocation. Carl’s primary interests are nature, landscape, and travel photography. He currently uses several digital and film cameras to capture his images and he prints with Epson and Canon large format printers. This exhibit will consist of landscape images from central New York and other areas. Carl was a research scientist with the department of Natural Resources at Cornell University from 1960 to 1995. Much of his work focused on Acid Rain impacts in the mountains of New York, Canada, and Scandanavia.
