Accepting Applications for Board of Trustees

We are seeking applications for an opening on our Board of Trustees. The new board member will fill the unexpired term of Carla Landon, who announced her intention to resign in July for personal reasons. Ms. Landon served two years of her four-year term, which expires Sept. 30, 2021.

Cathy Howard, president of the board, said, “Carla was an asset to the board, serving on several subcommittees and caring a great deal about the library. We will miss her service and the leadership she provided to us.”

By law, the board must maintain a balanced geographical representation of all areas of the county. In keeping with the law, applicants for the position should live in the following geographical area:

  • Newport, Bellevue or Dayton

Board members are non-paid positions appointed by the Campbell County Judge-Executive. Current board members are Cathy Howard of Fort Thomas, president; Paul Johnson of California, vice president; Christie Fillhardt of Highland Heights, secretary; and Tracy Smith of Alexandria, trustee.

People with occupations or interests in the areas of business, finance and banking would be especially beneficial. Trustees are expected to be advocates for the library. Applications for Ms. Landon’s replacement will be accepted until Aug. 18.

Copies of the job description and application form are available below and at each of our branches.

Applicants should complete the application and submit a cover letter and resume to the library’s director, JC Morgan.

The board meets at 5:30 pm on the third Wednesday of every month. Meetings last about two hours. Board member responsibilities include reading prepared materials prior to the meetings; reviewing and approving the policies and budget; and being an advocate for the library.
