Kathy opened the meeting and Karen moved to accept the June minutes with Sharon adding a second. The minutes are approved as written.
Mary reported on the children’s library activities. 114 children signed up for the summer reading program. The Teen Advisory Board will be leading July Story times. Story Time will resume the second week of September following an August break. The Program at the Park was led by 20 teens and a big success with the children.
Nancy reported that 37 teens and 35 adults participated in the Summer Library Program and there was good participation in the “activities.” The phone service was transferred from AT&T to NexTech on June 29. This has interrupted our ability to fax so she is looking into another avenue. The extra FLCL Book Page Magazines were distributed to the Lincoln medical offices. Inside is a sticker saying “if you find a book you want to read, contact the Library.” Nancy would like to try having adult programs/classes again probably in the evening. She would adjust her daytime hours so she wouldn’t be working extra hours. It is time to wax and buff the lower floor again. We have $300 from CKLS for Special Projects and hopefully FLCL could pay the rest. Nancy asked the board how many of the monthly reports are being used by the board and whether quarterly reports would suffice in certain areas. The consensus was to keep the income and expenses sheet and bills information available each month and the other itemization of library use printed quarterly.
Discussion followed concerning patrons who have overdue items at other libraries and may request a new library card from us. The subject was tabled to the next meeting. Terry will attend the next FLCL meeting and present a request for 2 heavy duty outdoor trash containers and a heavy duty pencil sharpener. Lynne moved to approve the bills with Sunnie adding a second to the motion. Motion carried.
Sharon moved to adjourn the meeting with Lynne adding a second to the motion. The next meeting will be on August 9, 2016.
