F.S. library budget, board seat vote looms
(Page 2 of 3)
I have been a resident of School District 17 for almost my entire life. I received my very first library card at the Franklin Square Public Library in first grade from Ms. Liberman. I am an alumnus of both Washington Street School and H. Frank Carey High School. During my senior year, I was president of the Carey Student Government along with many other organizations during my high school years. I’ve always enjoyed giving my time to our community. I currently hold undergraduate and graduate degrees from Stony Brook University. I am also a NYS certified math teacher. I’m currently teaching in a private middle school. I would like to be a member of the board of trustees because I think I can bring a new perspective to the board as a young member of this community. I believe that as a society gets deeper into an age of technology, we need to be mindful of keeping libraries relevant to young members of the community. It is my hope that as part of the board of trustees I can join in the excellent effort of this community to instill a love and opportunity for reading and media to all the people it serves.
I am proud and pleased to announce my candidacy for a seat on the board of trustees of the Franklin Square Library. As a member of the Franklin Square community for the past 32 years, I have truly enjoyed the literature and all the community programs that are provided by our local library. The library is such an integral part of the community for residents young and old, and as an elected trustee, I would make sure that these programs continue to benefit and enrich our community members and seek to bring additional technology related programs to our library. Currently, I hold the position as the teaching assistant for technology in the Franklin Square School District. I am directly involved in the area of library media science. I also collaborate with the librarians and teachers on technology related issues. My main areas of support include the district’s accelerated reading program, as well as the new iPad initiative. If elected, I would welcome the opportunity to bring my knowledge and expertise to the library board of trustees.
