Katrina presented a communication and a 1943-44 pencil depicting that year’s  schedule of the basketball teams,  to the library.   She will figure a way to display it. 

She reported about the Fall Festival that is scheduled for Saturday, October 29, from 2 – 5.  There is much going on that afternoon, and she is excited about the volunteers that want to help.

 Katrina shared that several movies have been missing in their cases.  She purchased a DVD/CD organizer and is in the process of taking the DVD and CD discs out of their cases, to store them separately, so the temptation to take them is reduced.  A discussion was held on how to keep them under lock and key, as well as replacing the file by the desk, as the key just doesn’t work. There is a need to secure confidential information, such as library applications, passwords, etc.

 At the August 29, 2016 meeting The Internet CIPA policy was discussed.  Katrina explained the options and costs.  Jean made a motion and Nancy seconded that the board direct Katrina to write the policy as explained, then with the board’s approval, send a copy to Mary Millard so she can continue the e-rate application.  The motion carried.  Mary indicated that it was ok, and continued her application.  With a motion from Jo and second from Carmen, this policy was formally adopted tonight, September 26, 2016. 

There being no further business, the meeting closed. 

The group was reminded that the next meeting will be on Monday, October 24, at 6:00, as not to interfere with the Halloween activities on Monday, October 31.

Jean Borgeson, Secretary
