Richard Martin tendered his resignation for his position as Trustee at a special meeting of the Library’s Board of Trustees on January 11. Martin will no longer reside in the district after January, making him ineligible to serve the rest of his term. He indicated in his letter of resignation that he will be taking a one-year contract in China to teach English to Chinese students. The resignation was officially accepted by the Board of Trustees and a vacancy declared at the regular meeting January 20, per the Bylaws of the Board. The Library Trustees and staff wish him well as he embarks on his new adventure!

This is a great opportunity to "test drive" a Trustee position without the full four-year commitment of being elected.
