We have two openings coming up for public librarians on the Listen Up! Vermont selection committee. Members of the committee are responsible for purchasing all of the titles for the Listen Up! collection, balancing the needs from schools and publics, children and adults, classics and new releases.
The committee tends to do all of its work by email, with the exception of very rare meetings to make large purchases — for example, our opening collection, and perhaps our opening mp3 collection. Feel free to contact Stephanie Chase at schase[at]stowelibrary.org if you would like to speak with a current committee member concerning the commitment.
If interested, please send a letter of interest (by email is fine) to Stephanie Chase, Stowe Free Library, PO Box 1029, Stowe, 05672 by Friday, August 15th. Please let us know why you are interested in serving, as well as your experience with Collection Development.
