(75 ILCS 16/30-25)
    Sec. 30-25. Vacancies.
    (a) Vacancies shall be declared in the office of trustee by the board when an elected or appointed trustee (i) declines, fails, or is unable to serve, (ii) becomes a nonresident of the district, (iii) is convicted of a misdemeanor by failing, neglecting, or refusing to discharge any duty imposed upon him or her by this Act, or (iv) has failed to pay the library taxes levied by the district. Absence without cause from all regular board meetings for a period of one year shall be a basis for declaring a vacancy.
    (b) All vacancies shall be filled by appointment by the remaining trustees until the next regular library election, at which time a trustee shall be elected for the remainder of the unexpired term. If, however, the vacancy occurs with less than 28 months remaining in the term, and if the vacancy occurs less than 88 days before the next regular scheduled election for this office, then the person so appointed shall serve the remainder of the unexpired term and no election to fill the vacancy shall be held. If the vacancy is in the office of a trustee of a library district with an appointed board, the vacancy shall be filled by appointment by the remaining trustees. Vacancies shall be filled forthwith.
