The only candidate for the one opening on the Chappaqua Library Board, Janet Short, has withdrawn her name.
To give an opportunity for other candidates to step forward, the Chappaqua School District plans to extend the deadline for candidate petitions to May 5 for the Library Board. The petition deadline had been April 18. The Chappaqua Library is a school district library.
If no one claims a place on the ballot, a candidate could still be chosen through a write-in, said Library Director Pamela Thornton. If no candidate is chosen on election day, the Library Board can appoint a member for one year until the 2012 election.
