The Jackson County Public Library board of trustees elected 2018 officers during a meeting Monday at the Seymour Library.

Those taking office in January are Joshua Bartley, president; Kathy Ellis, vice president; Susan Haskett, secretary; Sally Crouch, assistant secretary; and Mary Reed, treasurer.
