Board Vacancies Filled
On August 17, the Hinsdale Public Library Board of Trustees appointed Megan Mikhail and Denise Wong to the Library Board. The new trustees will serve until the next Consolidated Election in April 2023.
The Board solicited applications for prospective trustees in June and interviewed candidates in July.
“The board was gratified by the number and quality of the applications we received,” says Board President Julie Liesse. “We think that enthusiasm reflects the role the library plays in our community, and our patrons’ desire to support our efforts. We were fortunate to have such a stellar pool of candidates to consider; the applicants made it a tough decision for us. Megan and Denise bring tangible skills, community connections, and rich life experiences to the board, and most importantly, they share a passion for our mission.”
At the August meeting, Liesse also recommended the board appoint a third applicant, Kim Kiyosaki, to fill a final vacancy. Her appointment will be voted on at the board’s Sept. 21 meeting.
Mikhail and Wong replace former trustees Amy Glynn, who moved out of Hinsdale, and Kristin McDaniel, who resigned for personal reasons. Kiyosaki is slated to fill the seat of Mary Bock, who is moving out of state.
