Library board spot available

The Beaufort County public library system wants to fill an open board of trustees seat representing District 4.

The seat, which represents much of Bluffton and Daufuskie Island, has been vacant for five months. Without an application from a resident of that district, the seat will be given to an "at-large" member from another area of Beaufort County, according to a news release.

"While this is a good way to ensure a full board, the board of trustees wants to do everything it can to get an applicant from each of the county's districts," the release said.
