Kristin Thompson has been appointed by the Board of County Commissioners to the Spokane County Library District’s board of trustees.
Thompson will fill the remainder of a term due to the resignation of Sean Morrow, whose term expires Dec. 31, 2017.
A graduate of Willamette University and Hamline School of Law, Thompson is an experienced attorney with a background in estate planning and civil litigation. She currently works as a trust officer for U.S. Bank, specializing in the administration of special-needs trusts and leads a team of individuals committed to the betterment of the lives of the disabled clients they serve.
Thompson is an active community member with rotary, Upward Sports and the Spokane Guild School.
"I have loved the library since I was a small child,” Thompson said. “I believe it is the responsibility of the trustees to protect and help improve such a vital resource in our community. I hope to help ensure the library stays relevant and serves those who wish to utilize the wonderful opportunities and services the library system provides.”
Thompson joins the five-member board in establishing library district policies, overseeing finances and levies the property tax that comprises the majority of district funding.
