A reminder was given that the library has a new web site and
no longer pays a hosting fee.

Library funding from the county has increased which means
$17,543.91 this year and $17,872.16 next year for the Eldora
Public Library.

Due to budget shortfalls, the Library Trust Fund has
supplemented money for book purchases by approximately $4000
to date this year. It was recommended and approved by the
board to continue this practice for the next fiscal year to
bring the total book spending up to $12,000.

The personnel committee was given a reminder that Dan is due
for his annual performance review.
