  1. As a part of the 3 to 5 training hours a year for trustees, the board watched a webinar from the State Library’s Boardroom Series called Advocacy before the meeting. Angie and the board discussed the class.

 

  1. After the last meeting Angie decided to check all of the library ordinances not just the ones that were supposed to be corrected and she found some more errors. Angie gave those corrections to the city clerk to be presented at a city council meeting.  So far one correction has been presented and approved.  Angie hopes the other corrections will be on the agenda at the next council meeting.

 

  1. The library’s internet filters have been discussed at the meetings the last few months. The filters the library has are working, but no support is available for them.  The library is still compliant with E-rate since they are working.  Angie will research filters and costs soon.

 

  1. At the last meeting there was discussion about eliminating fines to provide equal access to all patrons. Angie was asked to compile more information on this topic.  She did and gave it to the board.  Other fine forgiveness ideas were discussed such as donating food to pay down fines or an amnesty week where fines would be forgiven for overdue materials.  Also one library had a fine free summer to encourage reading.  With this new information the board would like to table this discussion again to think about this issue.

New Business:

 

  1. The library’s Samsung copier has been leased and the lease is up. The board and Angie discussed whether or not to purchase the copier at fair market value or lease a new machine.   The board approved a new lease and maintenance agreement with the approval of the bills through Koch Brothers.

 

  1. Robin Brown and Holly Olson were given their annual written evaluations.

 

  1. The library’s circulation system called Atriuum was updated. Angie showed the board some changes to the card catalog and informed them on some other updated features.

 

  1. Last year at this time a rough draft of a new fiscal year budget was presented and discussed as per the request of the mayor. Since it is early to be discussing this and with the election of the new mayor, Angie decided to hold off on a rough draft until September or October.

 

Director’s Report:

 

The annual survey for the State Library of Iowa is due by October 31, 2018.  This survey is a requirement for accreditation.  After the survey is complete, Angie will create the library’s annual report from these statistics and will present the report to the board and the city council.

The board was given a schedule for preschool outreach.  Steph will be going to Tiger Tots and Lily Pad to read to the preschoolers as well as taking a selection of books for kids to enjoy.  Most of the visits will happen the third week of the month (although a few have been changed due to the holidays) and will be done through May.

            None to report

 

 

Correspondence and Communications:

 

  1. The State Library of Iowa sent an article on the list serve about removing barriers to access of materials by eliminating library fines on children’s materials. Angie gave the board a copy of this article for discussion.  According to the article removing fines would give equal access to all income brackets and would be more welcoming to children and families.  When goals of libraries today are to help develop early literacy skills, the threat of accumulating fines is keeping some families away.  The other side of the topic is that fines promote responsibility in returning things on time and it generates some revenue for the library.  It was commented that even if a patron has fines, materials are always available to use within the library.  The board has tabled this discussion until the next meeting and has asked Angie to compile more information from other fine free libraries in Iowa to review information on the pros and cons.

 

Unfinished Business:

 

  1. The repair of the sidewalk began on July 5 and was finished on July 6. Angie decided to keep the library open during the repair.  Patrons used the west side door to enter the library.  The original estimate had been to remove the small portion of concrete in front of the door but it was determined that another section of the sidewalk needed to be replaced to ensure water would flow away from the building.  Patrons were able to use the front entrance on Saturday, July 7.

 

  1. Mary Jo (city clerk) let Angie know that any corrections to the library ordinances will have to be presented at a city council meeting and will have to go through three readings.

 

  1. At the last meeting Angie informed the board that the internet filters the library is using will no longer be available for purchase. Angie was hoping that some discussion about this would have been brought up on the library list serve but unfortunately it was not.  Angie did receive an email from the previous filtering company the library used.  Angie switched due to incompatibility issues with the timer software the library has.  But if needed the library could go back to this filter.  With the busy summer Angie has not been able to gather more info about other filter options and costs.  At this time, the issue has been tabled again until more info is gathered and to see if the current filters are still operational since the subscription ends on July 10. (If they are working, no support would be available).

 

  1. The library’s trust account was discussed at the last meeting. Angie met with Mary Jo and Lori Stansberry (city consultant) about the trust account as well as the Boyd and Helms estate accounts.  Angie was assured that these accounts were going to essentially function the same way but she was asked if they could be reassigned to make it clearer for the city/auditor for accounting purposes.

 

  1. The State Library of Iowa has officially sent the library’s accreditation certificate. Angie presented it at the meeting.  The library is fully accredited until June 30, 2021.  It will be shown at the next council meeting, then it will be placed in a frame next to the fireplace.

 

New Business:

 

  1. Review of the library’s long range plan was conducted. Many items have been achieved.  Angie and the board have been reminded of areas where the objectives have not been met yet.

 

  1. For 26 years Shelly Schaffer has worked at the library, she has decided that it is time for her to retire. Her last day will be August 9.  Angie will be looking for a replacement to fill her hours and will be posting a help wanted sign soon.

 

  1. The library fax’s policy was given to the board for review. No additions or corrections were made.

On a motion by Dave, 2nd by Alice, to approve the fax policy as read.

Roll: Pam; absent. Dave; yes. Denise; yes. Alice; yes. Kelli; yes. Motion carried; all ayes

 

Director’s Report:

 

Amy, Steph and Angie have submitted a grant proposal to the Lowrey Foundation for the purchase of two educational Oculus Go virtual reality headsets and storage cases.  These VR (virtual reality) headsets are not tethered to a computer and are preloaded with educational apps.  These headsets will be for middle school and high school aged patrons as well as homeschoolers.  The library has asked for $829.98.  If the grant is awarded she will let the board know.

 

As a part of Direct State Aid and accreditation, Angie has filled out the necessary paperwork for the State Library of Iowa.  Angie has completed the Direct State Aid report, Interlibrary Loan report, and the Open Access report.  These reports are due on July 31, but are already done.

 

Weekly programs will continue until the first week of August for the Summer Reading Program.  The End of Summer Bash will be on August 8.

 

Upcoming programs include:

  • Teen CD Scratch Art program is Thursday, July 12 from 3:30 to 4:30 pm.
