Kay told the Board that it was time to redo the Personnel Policy. Marsha Truitt served on this committee the last time it was revised and volunteered to serve again.

Kay talked about the Resources Disk she shared last month. She talked about possibly working with Friends of the Library or BCCN to see if they were interested in helping with the Community Resource Disk. It is time again for the Library to update their Long Range Plan. Sharon Wood and Linda Jones will work with Kay on this Committee.

 

Jane shared that we missed being an Outstanding Board from LINK by 20 points.

 

Under old business a letter was sent by the Board to Mrs. Stilts explaining that the children’s book, The Dead Man At Indian Creek, she questioned will remain where it was originally placed.
