Swarthmore Public Library Board of Trustees seeks applicants:

It takes a dedicated community to maintain a quality library. If you would like to dedicate some of your time and energy in this pursuit, consider applying for one of three open seats on the nine-member Board. Trustee positions are for a three year term beginning in January. Candidates must be residents or taxpayers of the borough and be of voting age. A short application is available in the library.

Completed applications must be submitted to the library by Friday, October 31st, 2014. Thank you.

Our library has a collection of approximately 48,000 items including books, audio books, videos and DVDs, music CDs, books in large type and magazines and newspapers for all ages. As a part of the Delaware County Library System, we offer public Internet access, numerous online databases, e-books and interlibrary loan services.
