Vacancies filled on Hinsdale library board

Megan Mikhail and Denise Wong were appointed Aug. 17 to serve on the Hinsdale Public Library Board. They will serve until the next consolidated election in April 2023.

Mikhail and Wong replace former trustees Amy Glynn, who moved out of Hinsdale, and Kristin McDaniel, who resigned for personal reasons.

The board is slated to vote Sept. 21 on a third applicant, Kim Kiyosaki, to fill a final vacancy created by Mary Bock’s resignation. She is moving out of state.

All three board members who resigned were re-elected to serve a second four-year term in April.

The board solicited applications for prospective trustees in June and interviewed candidates in July.

“The board was gratified by the number and quality of the applications we received,” board President Julie Liesse said. “We think that enthusiasm reflects the role the library plays in our community, and our patrons’ desire to support our efforts. We were fortunate to have such a stellar pool of candidates to consider; the applicants made it a tough decision for us.

“Megan and Denise bring tangible skills, community connections, and rich life experiences to the board, and most importantly, they share a passion for our mission,” she added.
