New Board of Library Trustees

Charlie Wotjas in the LibraryThe make-up of the Library’s Board of Trustees changed slightly after the April 1st Town Elections. Two Trustees retained their seats, but a new face, Charlie Wojtas, was elected to the Board.

Charlie is replacing long-time Trustee Betty McCarthy, who decided not to run for another term after helping guide the Library for almost 40 years. Betty received the Outstanding Trustee Award from the Massachusetts Library Trustees Association in 2006, becoming only the eighth individual to earn this honor.

Following the Town-wide election, the Board itself met to elect new officers. This meeting saw Charlie immediately jumping into things by serving as the Board’s Treasurer. Lisa Daigle is the new Chair, and David Braslau the new Vice Chair. See the Library’s website for a complete listing of the Library’s Board of Trustees.
