Library Board Vacancy
The Board of Trustees are seeking a community member to join to Board who possesses a passion of public library service. The successful candidate will serve a term which runs through June 2025.

The seven-member Board of Trustees is the governing body authorized by the State of Ohio to establish policies and develop the Library's annual budget. Board members are volunteers who represent the citizens' interest while promoting the highest level of library service appropriate to the community, in accordance with state law. The Library Director and Fiscal Officer work with the Board to ensure that the community is being provided with library services and materials that reflect Barberton's values and standards.

The Board generally meets on the fourth Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. The Personnel, Finance and Audit, and Building Committees meet as needed and each Trustee serves on at least one committee.

Anyone interested in serving the community as a Library Trustee is encouraged to submit an application, cover letter and current resume. Applications are available at the Library's Customer Service Desk, the Community Health Branch. A fillable pdf application is available here.

About the Barberton Library Board of Trustees
Barberton Public Library has a seven-member Board of Trustees which is the governing body authorized by the State of Ohio to establish policies and develop our annual budget. Board members represent the citizens’ interest while promoting the highest level of library service appropriate to the community, in accordance with state law.  Members of the Library Board of Trustees are appointed for seven-year terms by the Barberton Board of Education. Library Trustees serve without remuneration.

The Barberton Public Library is a separate political subdivision of the State of Ohio. It is not part of city or county government. The service area is the Barberton City School District and the Library’s taxing authority is the Barberton Board of Education, which authorizes ballot issues to be placed before the voters on behalf of the Library.
