The Trustees reviewed and signed the bills
Felicia has started working on it and will have more to discuss next meeting. We haven't received anything from the town yet, but it's early days still.
There will be a staff meeting next Monday, there hasn't been one for a while
Haven't received a reconciliation report from the town yet.
The weeding has progressed to Children's Science.
The Overdrive audio book offering has been slow on the uptake. Only 75 have been checked out network wide. Ed said he thought there could be better publicity.
Vacation and sick days are listed on pay stubs now. This is progress, but the numbers are inaccurate. Margaret will pursue.
(Bi-weekly followup meetings in progress with Felicia, Cindy & Wendy)
She handed out a draft and would like the Trustees to fill it out and provide feedback by Friday.
The survey will be available for the taking online, at the library, senior center and such places around town. It'll be sent to the schools too.
There was the suggestion of putting it on one of the library's public computers.
Tell us your best ideas for what Regionalization could do for Medway. Be creative. What would be in your ideal setup?
Wendy would really like ideas. She said she was tired of always looking at problems.
Ed said he thought a Book Mobile for the seniors would be a good thing
Paperwork submitted early; awaiting MBLC vote (next meeting Dec 3)
His class is almost over and he'll be able to attend in January
Pre holiday hours will be 10-2. There was some worry about changing the opening time. Patrons might not notice. But nobody comes in the late afternoon before a holiday.
Motion to set pre-holiday hours for the Wednesday before Thanksgiving (11/25), the Thursday before Christmas (12/24) and the Thursday before New Years (12/31) to be 10AM to 2PM: MAC1, ED2. Passed unanimously
Minuteman would provide the machine. It would cost around $3000 initially, then there would be a $200 annual maintenance fee.
Motion to adjourn (8:25), CB1, MAC2, passed unanimously
