The Rippey Board of Trustees met in Special Session on Monday, August 2018 at 10:30 a. m. in the community meeting room.  The meeting was called to formally accept the resignation of Shawneene, and to review and discuss the procedures to follow for hiring a new librarian.  Attending were, trustees, Dale Hanaman, Nancy Burrow, Connie Neese, and Jean Borgeson, and Shawneene Kenan, Librarian.  Absent was trustee Brenda Roberts.

Connie moved and Nancy seconded to accept the agenda.  The vote carried.

Nancy moved and Connie seconded the motion to accept, with much regret, the resignation of Shawneene Kenan as the Rippey Librarian.  Her last day will be August 31.

By acclamation, the September 15 fundraiser was postponed.

The board then discussed and reviewed the timeline and procedures to follow for hiring a new librarian, following the previous procedures in April, 2016, and advice from the Maryann Mori, Central District Consultant, State Library of Iowa.

It is hoped the interview process can begin on Tuesday, September 25, 2018.

The Library will stay open with volunteers until a librarian is hired. Hopefully a selection can be presented to and approved by the council, at their meeting on October 2, 2018.

Shawneene will be available to help train the new librarian.

There will be an open house from 2-4 on Thursday, August 30, 2018 for Shawneene.

The members were reminded of our regular meeting on Monday, August 27, at 5:00 in the library.
