  6. Budget Report
  7. 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 which gets a lot of use and generally make sure that we are safely over the minimum.

  8. Acting Director's Report
  9. 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.
