AGENDA: Approved MINUTES: Approved BILLS: Approved

Director’s Report:

  • Dan will be cutting back some on the amount spent on books. He tries to average about $1,000 per month. Last couple of months exceeded that amount.
  • Looking for volunteers to help Dan run the Sunday Salon programs. Shirley Shirley and other volunteers have decided to take a break. Dan will send them all a thank you for their past work.
  • A special trust account has been established for the bequests of Merle and Howard Frey.
  • Dan has invited the elementary teachers to bring their classrooms to the Library. Some have already scheduled.
  • The current Library software is old and will not be upgraded. Dan suggested checking into Destiny, which is currently being used by the Radcliffe library. Hubbard may also go to this software. Dan will look into the possibility of the three libraries sharing a server.
  • The City is requesting that all volunteers sign a waiver of liability.
