At the December 9, 2020 SHARE Membership Meeting, the SHARE Executive Council proposed changing the SHARE governance, specifically the population sizes of public library representatives. Voting will begin Wednesday, December 16, 2020. 

Right now, public library representation includes:

  • Small Public Library Representative (Population less than 10,000)
  • Medium Public Library Representative (Population 10,001-50,000)
  • Large Public Library Representative (Population 50,001 or more)

Only one library fits the description of a large public library. That limits the volunteers that are able to serve on the SHARE Executive Council, due to both term limits and due to leadership in other committees.

Would you support changing the definition, as follows:

  • Small Public Library Representative (Population 10,000 or less)
  • Medium Public Library Representative (Population 10,001-25,000)
  • Large Public Library Representative (Population 25,001 or more
