Candidate Statement:

My name is Sarah Hubbell and I am running for Library Trustee. I have been an avid user of library services and resources since we moved to Wayland in 2000. I joined the Friends of the Wayland Library shortly thereafter, its Steering Committee in 2009, and served as President from 2012 to 2017. I was a member of the Library Planning Committee, convened in 2015 and only recently disbanded as our charter had been met.

How do we move forward, after the vote at last year’s Town Meeting for a new library failed to garner the requisite number of votes? This is a significant issue the Trustees will be addressing. Because of my involvement with the library on numerous levels, I am very aware of most of the issues the Board faces: the building’s history; the space constraints for programming and parking; residents’ attitudes and perceptions of the existing and proposed building; the patterns and habits of current library users; the balance between welcoming the new, encouraging the young, and still satisfying existing users; the desire to remain independent in a time of governmental change; and the need to be relevant in an increasingly technological world. I welcome the opportunity to help tackle these matters, ensuring the Wayland Library continues as a vital and vibrant Town resource.

I grew up in Weston and after a 10-year stint in California, my husband, Rawson, and I bought our house in Wayland center in 2000. We have 2 grown children who thrived in Wayland schools, I know most of Wayland’s conservation property since I love to walk it, and I sing in an a capella group. I would be honored to serve as Library Trustee and appreciate the Town’s support.
