Library Trustees Meeting
July 3, 2012
Medway Public Library
Margaret Perkins, Acting Director
Motion to approve the agenda: WLR1, DB2 passed unanimously
Motion to approve the Secretary's report as amended: CM1, WLR2, passed unanimously
Ed asked about the grounds. Weeds are taking over. Items weeded from Juvenile fiction are a particular problem, they've taken root and are growing like kudzu.
After discussion the Trustees decided to open programs to all regardless of residence, in particular we will not favor Medway residents in advance registration programs with limited capacity.
Motion to that effect: CB1, DB2, passed unanimously
Motion to adjourn (8:25): ED1, CM2, passed unanimously
Medway Public Library

The new HVAC RTUs were installed on June 26th. The RTU’s were originally in the Capital Improvement Plan for FY13, but the Town was able to pay for them through the Save Energy grant. The cost was about $22,000.
Thanks to a generous donation, the Library now has a train table, which the children are enjoying immensely.
DPS freshened up the library sign above the door so that it looks like new again.
It has been difficult to staff the library with one full-time staff person out, but fortunately we have been able to manage thanks to the flexibility of the part-time staff and to Susan Allison, our sub.
The Town is now CORI checking new employees over 18 years old.
I signed up for the Overdrive Advantage program, which began July 1st. I will be ordering extra copies of popular titles soon.
At the last Membership meeting, the Directors voted to maintain level funding for Overdrive so that Minuteman can explore other options for the future, rather than increasing the funding as the Digital Media Committee requested. The Library will have to pay Minuteman about $2,956 for Overdrive for FY13.
Now that the Treasurer’s office has transferred funds back into the bank account, I was able to reconcile the bank statement with the figures in MUNIS.
We have continued to receive bills from Verizon, in addition to bills (via Town Hall) from EarthLink for our new phone service. I checked with Richard Boucher, who investigated the issue. The Town Accountants office is now working on it. The only Verizon bills we should receive are those for the fax and the elevator phone.
