Mary reported on the Children’s Department that Story time will be taking a break until February 9, 2017. Following the evaluation committee’s recommendations, she and Nancy have been moving furniture around to make a little more space for the small children. She is planning to use memorial money to purchase an activity table and some toys to be used while the moms pick out books. She would like to use some memorial money to purchase small LEGO sets and games for the older kids and take her own sets home for her grandchildren. She is still working on the non-fiction area. The Teen Advisory Board will have a function December 17 at noon.

Nancy will be gone on vacation December 16-December 24. Barb Gourley and Mary will fill in her time.
