Librarians Without Borders Recruiting Directors

The humanitarian organization Librarians Without Borders, founded in 2005 by Master of Library and Information students at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, is looking for volunteer members to sit on its board of directors. Membership in the organization is worldwide and is not restricted to students.

Applications for the board of directors positions must be received by September 15, 2006.

"We are looking for individuals who share LWB’s values and can offer their passion or expertise to the benefit of the organization, in areas such as financial management, non-profit governance, strategic planning, policy development, fundraising, international development, world libraries, communications, and human resources / volunteer management."

The organization's first international project is Biblioteca Tutangi, a library for the post-secondary students in the community of Huambo, Angola. As part of the project, Library Without Border members helped collect nursing and medical textbooks, create a library development plan, find bookshelves, and secure an energy source for the library.
