Why I’m Running for the Library Board


You’re gonna be seeing this post for a few days right on the tippy-top of the page, so here’s a brief explanation:  I posted earlier that I was running to be a trustee on the Lisle Library District Board.  One of the things the Daily Herald asked for their Candidate Profile was website address and Why Are You Running.  If you go online to the Daily Herald, you’ll see candidate profiles for all races. Here’s a very brief synopsis of mine:

First off, I have no horse in this race – I am in excellent health and take classes like kick-boxing and tap dancing at COD to prove it.  I’m running because we need to bring all people into the library: those who are disabled, don’t drive or can’t afford internet are part of our community, too, yet have been marginalized.  Eight months to repair an elevator vital to those who can’t use stairs?  Washroom counters too high for those in wheelchairs or small children to reach?  Let’s set more daytime adult classes for those who don’t drive at night.  Investigate a weekly service to transport those residents so they can spend a few hours a week taking a class, choosing movies and books, going online and socializing – help maintain their independence.  Senior residences offer transportation; do we just ignore those who can’t afford those places?  And no, the answer is not Ride DuPage (already checked that out).
