My name is Virginia DuBrucq. I am a resident of Polson and a candidate for Trustee of the Lake County Public Library Board, and I hope that you will support me in this election. I believe that my background and experience will serve you well.

It is my understanding the Lake County Public Library will be undertaking an extensive renovation of their existing library building. As a retired architect and member emeritus of the American Institute of Architects, my knowledge and skills will help the board work with the selected architects through this process.

I have been involved in the design of seven libraries, six in Colorado and one in Kansas. Through this work, I became very familiar with library operations, the public needs that must be served and the logistical requirements that must be met. Public libraries serve everyone from the smallest child to the elderly, from story hour to large print books and from digital resources to community meeting spaces.

My experience running my own architectural practice for 46 years in Denver involved working with communities, public agencies and individuals in addressing complex problems and finding thoughtful solutions. As a businesswoman, I dealt with budgets, strategic planning and programming for a variety of projects.

As a member of the building committee of the Boys and Girls Club in Polson and Ronan, I believe that I have used my skills effectively for their recent projects. My participation will be similarly useful as a member of the Lake County Library board.

I am committed to working enthusiastically with the library staff and board to continue the success of the Lake County Public Library, and I hope that you will support me in this election.

Virginia DuBrucq
