We need to spend a bit more on materials than we thought, roughly $3000, to meet our certification requirement. This is because money spent on materials itself needs to be included in the calculation. Since our materials spending comes from donations it isn't in the town allocation.
We're going to renew Ancestry.com which gets a lot of use and generally make sure that we are safely over the minimum.
Haven't heard from Franklin about our Director sharing.
Franklin's maintenance person visited to get an idea of what cleaning the library would entail but hasn't gotten back to us.
Some patrons have talked the staff about the regionalization.
Carol reported on the Franklin Library Board meeting she attended:
The honors english "1 Town 1 Book" project is going forward.
Attended an ARIS training meeting.
There's Minuteman software upgrade in the works
The basement got cleaned, got rid of a lot of boxes.
Meena is happy if she has a key for the basement inner doors so she won't have to bother the staff when she sorts books. This seemed fine.
Motion to change the two revolving fund limits to $500 each. MAC1, CB2. Passed unanimously
Chuck is going to arrange for the fall.
Motion to adjourn (8:30), MAC1, CR2, passed unanimously
