 Board and Librarian Comments

We need to look at amounts and policies for Vacation Pay.

Do we want to hold a fund raiser for the library.  A spaghetti dinner perhaps with a silent auction?

We started looking at Tiny Cat.  This would be a replacement for the Concourse program.  This is the present computer library management program. It keeps track of books, books checked out, and so on. It was decided to wait until it is time to renew our subscription before we make a decision.

We talked about the possibility of having another Art on the Fly program.

 The library board also started to look at the Library Standards from the State Law Library.  These help allow the library to evaluate our present library, and look for ways to improve.

 Adjournment  Nancy moved, and Connie seconded we adjourn. Motion carried.

 Respectfully submitted

 Nancy Burrow, substitute secretary
