Moncman to resign, vacancy on board

Tuesday, Sept. 11, marked the final of meeting of Pattie Moncman, who is resigning from the Southwest Public Libraries Board of Trustees effective Oct. 9. She is moving outside of Franklin County and will be statutorily unable to serve.

Pattie Moncman joined the board in 2009 and served as board president during negotiations with the city of Grove City for the construction of the new Grove City Library. She worked tirelessly and diligently on the 2010 Levy Campaign, and her commitment to excellence, integrity, and advocacy for SPL played a major role in the library's advancement over the past decade.

We thank Pattie for her service and wish her the best of luck in her new ventures.

Her current seven-year term expires at the end of 2019. SPL is seeking qualified candidates to fill her seat. A trustee must be at least 18 years old and a resident of the South-Western City School District. All library trustees serve without compensation.

Interested candidates should submit applications by Oct. 10 to:
