Rippey Library Minutes April 25, 2016

The Rippey Library Board of Trustees met in the library on April 25, 2016 at 6:00 p. m.  Attending were Dale Hanaman, Carmen McColley, Jean Borgeson, and librarian, Katrina Buttler. Absent, Jo Bardole and Nancy Burrow ` .

The agenda was approved and the minutes of the last meeting were reviewed.  Carmen made the motion and Jean seconded the motion to accept the agenda and minutes.  The motion carried.

There was no public comment or correspondence.

The bills were reviewed and Carmen moved and Jean seconded the motion to approve the bills to be paid.  The motion carried. 

Mary Millard, City Clerk, spent the afternoon working with Katrina and Jean on what she needed each month and when to submit the bills to her to be paid, so she could print out her monthly treasure’s report in time for our meeting.  This was noted and Mary will have that report printed later or included in next month’s report.

The circulation report for April was handed out and sort reports about the Teen movie and Toddler Fest were shared.  Thanks to Dale, Carmen and others who helped at these events so our library could share in the attendance count.

Dale explained what he did and will do with the remaining books that were donated to the library after determining what could be used in our collection.

A reminder of the open house on Wednesday, April 27, 2016 was announced.  Dale and Jean will man the circulation desk so Katrina can circulate and meet the people who will come to greet her.

The Salaries of Staff policy was reviewed.  Carmen moved and Jean seconded to accept the revision as written.  The motion carried.

The Registered Sex Offender policy was reviewed and Carmen moved and Jean seconded to adopt this new policy for the library.  The motion carried.

The board then approved the motion by Jean to direct the librarian to write a letter to the person in question, giving authorization that they have use of the library.  The motion carried.

The By-Laws of the Library Policy was tabled until next month.

The board was requested by Janice Johnston to give permission to accept some keyboards to be checked out for use.  The keyboards have been donated with monies given to her as part of her outreach program of free piano lessons on the piano that was donated by the Carson Griffith family that is the west community room.  They will be available during library hours, thus giving the students access to a piano to practice on, as most of these kids don’t have pianos at home.  The motion was made by Jean and seconded by Carmen to accept the keyboards and the motion carried.

There being no other business or comments, the meeting were adjourned.

The next meeting will be May 23rd, 2016 at 6:00.  (note change of date due to Memorial Day)

Jean Borgeson, Secretary
