Opening for Library Trustee

The Prairie Skies Public Library District is looking for enthusiastic, interested, community-minded members to serve a two-year or four-year term as trustee on the library board.  Trustees are responsible for establishing policies and long-term goals for the district.  Working with the Library Director and Board Clerk they help craft the library’s yearly levy and budget.  As a trustee they help to promote the library’s mission, services and vision to the communities we serve.

If you feel libraries are an important benefit to communities and want to see them continue to grow and thrive then we are looking for you.  To serve on the board you must reside within the Prairie Skies Library District.  The board meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month rotating between the Ashland and Pleasant Plains locations. 


If you are interested, please contact Kathy Roegge, Director.  You may send an email to, or call either location – Ashland at 217-476-3417 or Pleasant Plains at 217-626-1553.
