Friends of the Library issue call for board applications

Would you describe yourself as an energetic, dynamic individual looking for an opportunity to serve your community in a meaningful, positive way? The Friends of the Columbus Metropolitan Library is searching for people meeting that description to serve on the organization’s Board of Trustees. Maybe they’re searching for you!

Friends of the Library board members absolutely love the library and have a heart for volunteer leadership. Prospective trustees often have previous experience serving on boards or committees along with knowledge of organizational recruiting, fundraising and budgeting. Board members serve three-year-terms (donating several evenings each month), and enthusiastically network and advocate for the library throughout our community.

If this volunteer leadership opportunity sounds like it might be a good fit for you, click FOL_Nomination_Package_2012 to download a copy (PDF) of the information packet and application. Mail the completed form (along with any additional materials detailing your skills and experience) to Friends of the Library, c/o Columbus Metropolitan Library, 96 South Grant Ave., Columbus, OH 43215. Fax (614) 849-1153. For more information, contact Donna Zuiderweg at (614) 849-1053 or via email at

To be considered, submissions must be received by 5 p.m., October 28, 2011. The nominating committee will begin reviewing applications soon thereafter.
