Lori Saviers has resigned as a member of the Delaware County District Library board of trustees.
Saviers submitted her letter of resignation on Tuesday to board president Michael Butler, citing her relocation outside the county.
“Lori Saviers has been an excellent trustee,” said district director George Needham. “She is passionate about libraries, she asked probing questions in the board meetings, and she was always looking for ways we could improve our service to the community.”
In her letter, Saviers described the enrichment she’s experienced through the library during her 14 years as a resident in the county and 10 years as a trustee.
“I have had the pleasure of engaging in two management transitions, a successful levy, the creation of an active and supportive Friends group, and the strategic design and implementation of a transformation facilities plan including the renovation of our existing facilities and the joyful fruition of our Orange branch,” said Saviers in the letter. “The meetings, programs and celebrations I’ve attended will be among my fondest memories of living in central Ohio.”
Saviers will be presented with a formal commendation at the next board meeting, which will take place on Aug. 23 at 5 p.m. in the Ostrander branch library, located at 75 N. Fourth St., Ostrander. No board meeting is scheduled for July.
Saviers’ remaining term will be filled by appointment through the office of Delaware County Common Pleas Judge Everett Krueger. The seven-year term expires Dec. 31, 2019. Interested applicants should contact Needham at 740-362-3861 or [email protected]
