HALLOWELL — The Hubbard Free Library is seeking applicants for several vacancies on its board of trustees.

Over the past 144 years, the Hubbard thrived because thousands of Hallowell citizens understood that intellectual freedom, information, and the fostering of an engaged, informed citizenry is fundamental to democracy, according to a news release from Jill Lectka, vice president, Board of Trustees.

Trustees are responsible for overseeing the library’s finances, protecting its assets, and raising funds to run the library and preserve the building. They also participate in long-range planning to continue meeting the needs of the Hallowell community. A trustee takes part in monthly board meetings and serves on one or more standing committees. They have a serious commitment to the library’s mission and service to the community.

The trustees are looking for people who represent of the diverse Hallowell community and have special talents and expert knowledge such as accounting/bookkeeping, finance, community relations, grant writing, library programming or personnel.

Those interested in joining the board can mail a brief note describing their interest and experience and any special talents or body of knowledge they would bring to the board, along with contact information, to the President, Board of Trustees at the Hubbard Free Library, 115 Second St., Hallowell, ME 04347. People also can email hfl@msln.net.

A board member will reach out to discuss how one’s specific skills and experience might fit with the trustees’ desire to advance the Hubbard’s mission.
