Recruiting New Board Members
The City of Duvall, in partnership with the King County Library System (KCLS) is seeking applicants for one youth board member for the Duvall Library Board. The primary purpose of the Board is to act as a bridge between the library and the local community and to communicate with the City, KCLS, and library staff about needs in the community that the local library can assist in addressing. Youth Members, appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by City Council, serve without compensation for a one-year term. If you're interested in a unique opportunity to serve as a library advocate in our community, please complete an application form and email it to MeeLin Nakata and Lisa MacKay. Or, you can also drop it off to City Hall at 15535 Main Street NE or via US postal to PO Box 1300, Duvall, WA  98019.
