NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- The New Rochelle Public Library Board of Trustees has announced that Library Trustee Damon Maher resigned from the NRPL Board of Trustees at the Board’s November 9th meeting. Mr. Maher was elected County legislator for District 10 in the November 7th election. The Board is now seeking applications from residents interested in serving the remainder of Mr. Maher’s term, which will end on June 30, 2018.

New Rochelle residents interested in being considered for the temporary position should submit resumes or biographical statements to the New Rochelle Board of Trustees Nominating Committee, NRPL, 1 Library Plaza, New Rochelle, NY 10801, before December 15, 2018.  The board will review the submissions and expects to fill the appointment at the January 11th Board of Trustees Meeting. 

The annual Library election in May, 2018 will include the election of three library trustee positions: two for the regularly-scheduled election of a trustee for a 5-year term, as Mr. Maher’s and Quentin Jacob’s terms will terminate on June 30, 2018. The third position will be to complete the last year of Haina Just-Michael’s former seat.  Ms. Just-Michael resigned in September because she and her family are relocating out of New Rochelle. The two candidates who receive the most votes will serve the five-year terms.

The Library Board of Trustees meets in the library’s Ossie Davis Theater on the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 pm.
