Haina Just-Michael, Pres. Of NRPL Board of Trustees swears in Yadira Ramos-Herbert as newest NRPL Board Member [Black Westchester]

At a February 28th meeting of the New Rochelle Public Library Board of Trustees, the Board accepted the resignation of Trustee George Walters and appointed Yadira Ramos-Herbert to fill the remainder of his fourth year of a five-year term. Mr. Walters resigned due to his relocation outside of New Rochelle. The fourth year of Mr. Walters’ term will conclude on June 30, 2015.

The annual library election on May 17, 2016 will involve the election of three library trustee positions: one for the regularly scheduled election of a trustee for a five-year term; a trustee to complete the last three years of Emery Schweig’s five-year term that was filled by Dierdra Clark in January, 2016; and a trustee to complete the fifth year of Mr. Walter’s five-year term now being filled by Ms. Ramos-Herbert.

Ms. Ramos-Herbert was selected from a number of well-qualified individuals who had submitted resumes and biographical statements in December, 2015, to be considered for the temporary position left by the resignation of Ms. Scheig. An eight-year resident of New Rochelle, Ms. Ramos-Herbert received her Juris Doctor from the University of Buffalo Law School and a Master’s Degree in Education from Northeastern University. She is currently employed as the Director of Academic Advising and Student Outreach at Columbia Law School.

Ms. Ramos-Herbert is the mother of two young children who are avid library participants. She is active in a number of community organizations and with her children’s schools and her house of worship.
