BOARD OF TRUSTEES
February 14, 2017
President Debbie Herbert called the meeting to order at 5:20 pm. Trustees in attendance included: Anna Jesse, Anna Gregory, and Cathy Murray. Cindy Ruot, Barb Hogan, and Linda Williams were absent. Librarians Kay Burrous and Vicki Carr were also in attendance.
The minutes and financial report from the January 10, 2017 meeting were read and approved.
Kay Burrous gave a report on circulation and computer usage for January.
Summer reading plans are well underway with several events already booked.
Another Kids Craft Night is planned but will cost more than the usual $5 per child. A decision was made to ask the community for donations to make up the difference. Another Ladies Night Out is also in the works with Heather Secker and a sign making project.
Bookworm is underway with several children participating. A pizza party will be given for the children at the end.
Our usual donation will be given to support Outside the Barn at the Farm Progress Show. Motion made by Cathy Murray, seconded by Anna Gregory, all voted yes.
A carpet seam is coming apart and permission was given to get it fixed as soon as possible. Also the carpet will be cleaned after the spring mud has abated.
One patron is upset that her child is not allowed to take books home. The problem is that they owe the library approximately $100 for books not returned. The board decided to stick with our police as stated that outsanding books be returned or paid for first.
The staff has questions about a homeless person wanting to use the computers to find a job. He's not a member. It was decided that as long as a computer was available and no patron wanting to use it; he can use it until it is needed.
It was brought to our attention that our fax and copy rates are way behind what others charge. The staff will be figuring cost and report at the next meeting.
A motion to adjourn was made by Anna Jesse and seconded by Cathy Murray. The meeting adjourned at 6:10.
The next meeting will be March 14, 2017 at 5:15 p.m.
