Two Seats Open on APL Board of Trustees in May Election

The nine-member Albany Public Library Board of Trustees has two positions that are up for election on Tuesday, May 18. The library’s trustees are charged with making the rules, regulations, and policies under which the (soon-to-be) seven-location library system operates. The two open trustee positions carry full five-year terms that start on July 1, 2010.

In order to run for library trustee, candidates must meet the following criteria:
+ Be at least 18-years-old
+ Be a United States citizen
+ Reside in the city of Albany
+ Have been registered to vote in the previous year’s general election
+ Submit a valid nominating petition

Starting Friday, March 12, nominating petitions will be available at the Reference Desk of the Main Library at 161 Washington Avenue. Interested candidates can pick up a nominating packet at the Main Library Reference Desk during regular library hours.

Completed nominating petitions (including at least 80 valid signatures) must be returned to the Clerk of the City School District of Albany by 4:30 p.m. on Monday, April 19.
