August 13, 2013 Library Board Meeting Minutes

August 13, 2013

Members:  Kathy Moss, Patrisha Street, Jerry Philbrick, Karen Jeffers, Terry Broberg, and Lynne Metz
Librarians:  Nancy Jensen and Mary Andersen

In the absence of the board president, Anne Grace, vice president Kathy Moss called the meeting to order.

Terry made the motion to approve the minutes of both July 9th and the July 18th special meeting.  Terry read the minutes of the special meeting.  Karen seconded the motion.

Mary gave her report on the summer library program.  There was a good turn out and the participants had a great time.

Nancy gave her librarian’s report.  Some of the things on her agenda were dandelions, problems with the west door sticking, Chamber bingo, Hand railing, the internet and the conceal carry policy.

The board viewed samples of the book bags.  The Board will decide on the quality and how many to purchase as a fund raiser for the 100th anniversary of the library.  Discussion followed and this matter was tabled till the next board meeting.

Anne was to have talked with Mr. Winegar about the WEB Grant for the Microfilm Machine.  Material received from the WEB Grant had questions as how we were going to raise the rest of the money for the Microfilm Machine.  They did not give the Library any funds at this time.  The next money payout will be on October 23.  A Board Member or Members will attend this meeting to answer the questions they have.

Terry explained about the door proposal.  Discussion followed on the door.   We can get a custom made door with popular on the outside and oak on the inside.  Our present door also has window issues as well.  As yet we haven’t discussed the hardware for the door.  We need to get started on this project as the doors have been sticking shut.  Board members looked at the door and glass to see its problems.  We need to get on this project.  Jerry made the motion to purchase the new door.  Karen seconded the motion.

Lynne made the motion to pay the bills for the month and Kathy seconded the motion.

Lynne made the motion to adjourn the meeting and Trisha seconded the motion.  The next meeting will be on September 12, at 5:00.

Respectfully submitted,
Kathy Moss, just filling in for Lynne
