 Phyllis reported on the county librarian association meeting, held in Paton this morning.  She received a memorial from the children of Midge Vannatta.  Money was given in memory of Barb Parkison, who served on the board from 2008-2010 when she and her daughter, Pastor Deb Parkison, moved to Manson.  Barb passed away April 19, 2019. This deposit will be noted on next month’s report.

The summer reading was discussed.   Decisions will be made in the coming months about dates and volunteers to help.

Dale announced a reminder from the city clerk that a motion was needed to make to request to the city council that extra library funds at the end of the year be rolled over into fiscal year 2019-2020. Nancy made the motion, Brenda seconded and it carried.

Dale announced he would be completing his term on June 30 and will not be serving another term. Connie and Nancy’s term will be up, also.  Connie will be moving and that term ends on June 30, also. Nancy agreed to be re-appointed to her own term as long as she and her husband stay in Rippey.  Several names were mentioned to contact for two library board members, one from the country and one from the city.  Jean will contact those people.

There were no more comments from the librarian or the board members, so Nancy moved and Connie seconded the motion to adjourn. 

The next meeting will be Monday, May 20, 2019, due to Memorial Day being on our regular meeting night.

Jean Borgeson, Secretary
