June 2015, Board Meeting Minutes

JUNE 9, 2015

Members Present:  Kathy Moss, Anne Grace, Karen Jeffers, Terry Broberg, Patrisha Street, Sunnie McBride, Lynne Metz
Library Director Nancy Jensen,   Children’s Librarian Mary Andersen

Kathy called the meeting to order.  Anne moved to accept the May 12, 2015 minutes as written.  Karen seconded the motion.  Motion carried.
Mary reported the following attendance:  120 summer Library Program, over 50 attended the Tuesday Therapy dog Program, 39 for Story time led by the teen advisory board members, 30 kids for Kid’s Game Day and 12 teens for Teen Game Day. The Teen Advisory Board have been enthusiastic, helpful and reliable. Donations of $465 have been received from area businesses.
Nancy reported that CKLS 2016 System Plan will require an annual written evaluation of the Library Director and a description of new trustee recruitment and orientation process. Quite a few adults have signed up for the Summer Reading Program, having a blind date with a book. The new laptop from CKLS is here.
Lynne read a thank you note from Mindy Lewick for the $20 gift certificate Anne got to show our appreciation for her help in the landscaping project.
Terry reported that the replacement stones for the limestone repair project will be installed this week.  The project will be completed. 
Nancy handed out information on overdue items, new patron probation period and restrictions that she has compiled.  Part of the information included our present policy of 6 month probation for new card holders, restricting them to checking out 3 items (only 1 DVD or game).  Lynne moved to change the probation period on new patrons to 4 months.  Terry seconded the motion.  The motion carried.  Other things to consider are the age of issuing a library card to 10-13 year olds, (now 12 with parents co-signing), allow teens to get an adult library card at age 14 (their own responsibility) and the length of overdue time to suspend a patron’s account and charges for lost and damaged items. The Board members asked Nancy to consolidate the information regarding the above so that a vote could be taken at the July meeting.
Patrisha moved to pay the bills and Sunnie seconded the motion.  The motion carried.  Patrisha moved to adjourn the meeting and Sunnie seconded the motion.  The meeting is adjourned until July 14, 2015 at 5:15pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Lynne Metz, secretary
