We are looking for a number of trustees to join the Libraries Connected board.
We are seeking both independent trustees and trustees from among our membership. These new trustees will help us fulfil the objectives laid out in our 2023-27 strategic plan. Our trustees must have a passion for the future of libraries, along with the vision, expertise and creativity to help us as we develop and grow. We are looking for a range of skills and experience among our trustees. They do not need to have a background in public libraries, but they must have a passion for our mission and purpose.
Trustees will be expected to visit at least two library services per year, together with a Libraries Connected member of staff and to attend up to two networking or launch events per year. The role of trustee will take up approximately 12 days per year.
