  10. Have not received the reconciliation from the town for August or September.

  11. Trustee Chair's Report
  12. Some patrons have mentioned that Franklin librarians told them that they needed to return materials to Franklin themselves, rather than dropping the stuff off at the Medway Library. Felicia explained that the message was supposed to be worded as a suggestion. Felicia said that the Metrowest delivery system is overloaded and in danger of collapse and that all libraries should request that patrons return materials to the originating library where convenient.

  13. Regionalization Report
  14. Old business
  15. Have not heard from the Medway High School 1 town 1 book coordinator. Wendy took down the signage. We're looking forward to the 2 towns 1 book event.

    The Medway Community Ed yoga class showed up for classes without reserving the Cole room for the season. There are a few conflicts, but they can use the children's room in those cases.

    Ed mentioned that we don't have Felicia's resume as requested. She said she'd get it to us when she next updates it.

  16. New Business

Motion to adjourn (8:35), MAC1, WLR2, passed unanimously
