Welcome Return to Trustee Wolf, and Fond Farewell to Trustee Barshis
At the August 17 Regular Meeting of the Wilmette Public Library District Board of Trustees, the Board accepted the resignation of Trustee Jan Barshis, and voted unanimously to appoint former Trustee Stuart Wolf to fill the vacancy until the April 2023 election.
Trustee Barshis submitted her resignation from the Library Board on Wednesday, August 4. A trustee for more than 10 years, Barshis was a strong library advocate who championed concerns for parking, emerging technologies, and green initiatives.
Upon learning of Barshis’s resignation, Board President Lisa McDonald, with the support of the remaining board members, reached out to former trustee Stuart Wolf to fill the vacancy. Wolf was originally elected to the Library Board in April of 2013, and has previously served as Treasurer and Vice President. Wolf was among 6 candidates vying for 3 seats in the April 2021 election. Wolf’s first meeting as an appointed Trustee will be the September 21 meeting.
Staff and board members thank Trustee Barshis for her service, and welcome Trustee Wolf back to the board!
