Subject: Board Meeting Approval

 Dear Library Board members

 Tonight we had our "remake" Library Board meeting due to my forgeting last week.  Sorry I missed that meeting.

 So, when we met tonight, Shawneene, Jo and I were present.  We need your affirmation of our action, so we can affirm our decisions.

 The minutes and bills were approved.  (A copy of the bills is included here.)

 Shawneene shared that there was a great response to the Family Movie Night, the Craft event today, and the Christmas crafts.

 She is interested in collecting LEGOs for use at the Library.  The LEGOs would provide additional stimulation beyond the computers.

 She is meeting with the Librarians on January 9, 2017 and the Supervisors and on January 1, 2017 with Marianne Mori.  She also suggested another book read, “The Bottomland", the All Iowa Read Book.  Dale suggested she talk with the other Librarians as there has been a Greene County Read Book selected in the past.

 Also you will find a copy of the working Budge and t for 2017-2018.  We will need to finalize this the end of January 2017.  The Library Usage sheet from Shawneene is also included here.

 Dale Hanaman, President (and secretary pro-tem)

 Action to approve the bills was received on December 28, 2016  from Carmen and Jean via E-mail.
