New Trustees and Officers at Mount Prospect Public Library

Newly elected Board of Trustees of the Mount Prospect Public Library were sworn in during the Board’s monthly meeting on May 20, welcoming back reelected Trustees and a new Trustee to the Board. 

From the April 6 Consolidated Election, voters reelected Trustee Sylvia Haas to a two-year term and Trustee Kristine O’Sullivan to a six-year term. New to the Board with a six-year term is Trustee Rosemary Groenwald. Mount Prospect Village Clerk Karen Agoranos attended the meeting remotely to swear in the elected officials.

During Thursday’s board meeting, the Board appointed Trustee Marie Bass to fill the vacancy when former library Trustee Terri Gens was elected to the Mount Prospect Village Board. The term runs until the next Consolidated Election in April 2023. 

The Board also elected officers for the 2021-2022 term: Trustee Michael Duebner as president, Trustee Sylvia Fulk as vice president, Trustee Brian Gilligan as treasurer, and Trustee Bass as secretary. 

The Board meets the third Thursday of each month. For information about upcoming meetings, visit Board of Trustees.
