Bob Beer obvious choice for library board

Bob Beer is the obvious choice as the newest member of the Bluffton Public Library Board. Although he is the newest member, being appointed to fill an unexpired term, he may be among the most experienced of candidates, having recently left the board after completing a seven-year term.


School board appoints Bob Beer to library board

Bob Beer thought his stint on the Bluffton Public Library board ended recently when his first seven-year term expired.

However, with the resignation of library board member Sherry Haehl on Oct. 26, Beer is back on the board.

The Bluffton school board, who appoints library board members, named Beer to fulfill Haehl's unexpired term, which expires Dec. 31. He was also appointed to a new seven-year library board term from January 2010 through Dec. 31, 2016.

The action took place at the Nov. 16 school board meeting.
