The committee will be responsible for recommending library district boundaries

The City of Boulder and Boulder Public Library announce the selection of 12 community members to serve on the Library District Advisory Committee. The members will take the next step to help navigate the process of creating a library district.

The committee will be responsible for recommending library district boundaries, services the library district will provide, the mill levy amount needed to provide services, engagement methods and key information to share with the community.

The members of the Advisory Committee are:

  • Alicia Seidle
  • Annette Dula
  • Cara Schenkel
  • Chip [no surname]
  • Deborah Read Fowler
  • Jane Sykes Wilson
  • Joanna Rosenblum
  • Joni Teter
  • Kevin Miller
  • Michelle Denae Garcia-Morrissey
  • Miho Shida
  • Peter Pollock

Committee members were evaluated and selected based on the criteria of interests, experience, skills, and equity. Those selected are representative of business owners, renters, property owners, various age ranges, race and income. Meetings will start in October and be held twice a month for three hours online using Zoom. The meetings will include time for public comment and for community input through the webpage comment form to be read aloud or summarized. With the help of a facilitator, the recommendations will be submitted to the City Manager and to City Council in a report in January 2022.
