Nandini Charles is running for Sayville Library trustee because she believes better utilization can be made of the available space.
The 22-year Sayville resident, whose three children are all graduates of Sayville schools, was defeated in an initial library election bid several years ago.
“I just feel we spent some much on this library and still see places where it’s not really competing with other libraries on Long Island. Four out of five times when you are looking for a book the library either doesn’t have it or it’s on order,” said Charles, who runs a educational tutorial business.
“The library runs a lot of programs but I just think more use can come out ofthe building as the community worked hard to have this new library,” she said.
There are two open trustee seats in the Sayville Library election, which will be held May 15.
Debra Mitchell, who has been in a trustee role since February, is being uncontested for a new four-year term.
Charles and challenger Joseph Loughren are vying for a five-year seat formerly held by trustee John Patin who decided not to see election.
Voting will take place between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. in the lobby of the Sayville High School on Brook Street in West Sayville.
