Jones Library Gardens Advisory Committee

Spread the Word!

 The Jones Library Board of Trustees in Amherst seeks six energetic and enthusiastic volunteers with gardening, landscaping, and/or garden design experience to serve on the Library’s newly established Jones Library Gardens Advisory Committee.

Under the direction of the Library’s Facilities Supervisor and Library Director, in accordance with the Board’s Gardens Policy, this Committee will assist in the planning, development, and maintenance of all Library owned and/or maintained green spaces.  The Committee will also assist with the design, development, and implementation of the Jones Library’s green spaces if the Jones Library expansion/renovation project moves forward.  (Please see attached Jones Library Gardens Advisory Committee Charge and the Library’s Gardens Policy for more information.)


The Trustees are committed to building a culturally and socioeconomically diverse Committee and strongly encourages applications from all persons with applicable experience.  Committee members will be selected based on expertise, experience, a commitment to develop and maintain Library green spaces, and an appreciation for public Library services. 


Please submit a letter of interest and resumé by Monday, July 31, 2017 to:


Sharon Sharry, Library Director

The Jones Library

43 Amity Street

Amherst, MA  01002


Beginning Monday, August 28, 2017, applicants will be interviewed by the Buildings and Facilities Committee and recommendations then made to the Board of Trustees for appointment to the Committee.   In order to maintain staggered terms, initially, three Committee member terms will be for one year and the remaining three Committee member terms will be for two years.
