A Special Meeting of the Sandwich District Library Board of Trustee Personnel Committee will be held on Thursday, May 18 2017 at 5:00pm at the Sandwich Public Library, 925 South Main Street, Sandwich, Illinois.

The Regular Meeting of the Sandwich District Library Board of Trustees will be held on Tuesday, May 9 2017 at 6:30pm at the Sandwich Public Library, 925 South Main Street, Sandwich, Illinois.

Sandwich Public Library recently welcomed Amanda Bennett as the new Director.

Amanda has more than 10 years’ experience working in both public and university libraries in a variety of roles, most recently acting as the Director of the Ada Public Library, OH.

She loves reading, traveling, camping, and getting into all kinds of mischief. While she gladly roots for the Cubs, she will NEVER root for the Bears—she is a diehard Detroit Lions fan, because she loves the emotional pain of knowing that her team will never make it to a Super Bowl in her lifetime.


Amanda holds a B.A. in English from Oakland University, MI, and a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Sciences from Wayne State University, MI.

To contact Amanda please call the library at (815) 786-8308 ext. 212

The Sandwich Public Library District Board of Trustees seeks candidates to fill three vacancies on the Library Board.  Those interested in being appointed should submit a letter of interest detailing their background in Sandwich, personal interests, work history that might pertain to serving as a trustee and a statement indicating the reason for their interest in serving on the Board. Applicants should hold a current library card or be willing to apply for one.

The Library Board is composed of seven trustees, who must be residents of the Sandwich Public Library District.  On average at this time, the Trustee position requires a time commitment of up to 10  hours per month (this includes 1-2 meetings and preparation). 

Trustees serve without compensation and must be available for regular meetings held in the evening on the second Tuesday of each month in addition to special meetings for various matters.  We appreciate the interest and support of the Sandwich Public Library District.

Current Trustees will review applicants as they are submitted; a Special Meeting will be scheduled to interview top candidates.  The selected candidates will serve until the next regular election in April of 2019 at which time the selected candidates must either run for public election or resign from the Board.
