Our citizen remained silent
Wendy is taking care that we pay the right amount from the right bucket so that we don't spend too much donation money.
Consensus was that we not force one, just wait for one. Chuck (in absentia) thought that we should force it, but he was the only one.
Wendy'll check drawings to look for light timer since past director Phil McNulty thinks there is one.
Wendy will followup in email requesting specifics. Margaret will order some.
Our issue to decide: "Melville vs. Steele"
Some discussion, but nothing settled. Elliott expressed a strong preference for more Classic Literature and less Danielle Steele.
Some discussion of saturday hours, but it's not practical at this staffing and financial level so nothing was decided. Saturdays need at least two employees and we only have three; even if we used some temps, we'd need someone who knows what's going on and that's a lot of saturdays. We would need to talk with the staff and have them agree to a plan before we could even consider Saturday hours. summer hours remain unchanged.
Coming think and fast
Bill Roberts brought this to our attention and will look into it further. Wendy said she would put a link to it on the library website.
Town is providing training at no cost to departments. Library employees are going
Elliott pointed out that the flag is not illuminated at night and has taken the responsibility of raising/lowering it so that it's always up while we're open. Someone suggested we ask around to see if a veteran would donate to light the flag. It's not just the light but also the electricity.
Planned, but nothing done so far.
We'll ponder some other time
Adjourned: 8:50 (???1,???2) it was unanimous anyhow
