Jesús Salas sworn in as new Library Board of Trustee member

Jesús Salas, a Senior Attorney at ABLE (Advocates for Basic Legal Equality, Inc.), took an oath and was sworn in as a member of the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library Board of Trustees during a regular meeting held this morning (Thursday, November 20, 2014) at Main Library, 325 Michigan St.

The Lucas County Commissioners took action on November 3, 2014 to appoint Mr. Salas. His term is scheduled to expire on January 10, 2018. Mr. Salas will fill the unexpired term of Sister Janet Doyle, who resigned from her board duties.

Mr. Salas said he was reared in El Paso, Texas and spent many of his childhood days at the public library and at his school library. “I would spend hours studying there. In high school, we had a top-notch Library and I would live there taking it all in,” said Mr. Salas after the board meeting adjourned.

Mr. Salas holds a BA in Sociology/Psychology from the University of Oregon, took international studies courses at Oxford University and Magdalen College in Oxford, England via the University of San Diego, and received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Oregon School of Law.

Mr. Salas, who is married with two adult sons in college, said he is eager to serve as a new Library board member and expects that his advocacy experiences for the economically deprived will greatly assist the system in its efforts in the areas of early literacy, bilingual programming/literature and issues surrounding access to technology.
