In the absence of president, Kathy Moss, Karen opened the meeting. Anne moved to approve the minutes of August 11, 2015. Patrisha seconded the motion. The minutes are approved as written.
Nancy reported going to a CKLS meeting on policies and bylaws. CKLS wants each board to add new bylaws to our policy handbook. She will present them at the October meeting. She contacted CKLS to see if this year’s competitive grant would work for a book display and they said no. She presented two options for a mobile pyramid display. The Post Rock Community Foundation workshop will be September 17 at 6:30pm. We are invited to attend. The Fall Newsletter was e-mailed to 623 patrons. World Pest Control did our annual treatment.
Mary reported that she is working on the fall/winter story time schedule using a school theme, focusing on letters, numbers, pre-writing skills, etc. Sharon Markley will be holding her Parents As Teachers playgroups once a month during story time. Mr. Koch and Mr. Cavalli agreed to the LEAP kids coming to the library the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month. They are providing $300-$400 to purchase crafts. The Teen Board entered “cupcake wars” at the Post Rock Festival with 14 teens participating. She is working on the children’s non-fiction section.
Terry reported that Mr. Naegele will finish fixing the stonework soon and is preparing an estimate on cleaning the old limestone. The Mobile Pyramid Display information was made available. Some members wondered if this could be a project for the wood-working students at the high school, or if Crestwood Cabinets would be interested in making it. Terry will contact Crestwood. Lynne moved to pay the current bills. Anne seconded the motion. The motion carried. Patrisha moved to adjourn with Anne seconding the motion. The next meeting will be October 13, 2015.
Respectfully submitted by Lynne Metz, secretary
