Election day is just around the corner as you all know. Beyond, the presidential candidates what you may not know is our own Joseph Corriveau is a candidate for Trustee of the Northville District Library.
“The library board is composed of seven elected trustees whose main function is to oversee the operation of the Northville District Library. Trustees act as advocates for the library, work to ensure adequate funding, and make decisions regarding library policy. Meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m.”
This year there are three terms on the Northville District Library Board of Trustees set to expire.
“All three library board incumbents — Joseph Corriveau, Robert Sochacki, and James Morché — are seeking re-election to four-year terms, which begin in January 2017.”
Joseph Corriveau was originally appointed by the board to fill a vacancy in 2006 and has been elected twice since then. “Civic involvement has always been a priority in his family, and the library has been a “constant presence” in his life, from grade school through law school and now as a parent.”
Mr. Corriveau sees the library as “a safe place where you learn, gather, study, and dream” and wishes to ensure that Northville’s quality services remain for generations to come. During his 10 years as trustee, Corriveau has worked toward informing residents in the district of the library’s evolving set of services.
