Mason County is seeking an applicant to serve on the Timberland Regional Library (TRL) Board of Trustees to complete a term expiring December 31, 2024.
The TRL Board of Trustees is a five-county rural library district (Grays Harbor, Lewis, Mason, Pacific and Thurston). The Board is made up of seven members appointed by county commissioners, one from the five counties included in the district and two at-large members. This is an unpaid position although travel and board related expenses are reimbursable.
The TRL Board of Trustees attend monthly meetings and scheduled events, Mason County library visits and act as a liaison between Timberland’s Board and the Mason County Commissioners.
Board meetings are generally scheduled on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. If the fourth Wednesday interferes with holidays or conferences, the meeting is held on the third or the fifth Wednesday. There are usually six meetings a year held in Olympia and six meetings held in other areas of the district.
Advisory application forms may be obtained from the Mason County Commissioners’ office at 411 North 5th Street, Shelton or on our website at www.co.mason.wa.us or by calling 427-9670 ext. 419. Applications should be submitted to the Commissioners’ office.
