            None to report

 

 

Correspondence and Communications:

 

  1. Every year the library receives an email about the library’s current tier level and status. The library is fully accredited at a tier level 3 (highest tier level) until June 30, 2021.

 

Unfinished Business:

 

  1. Heritage Interiors will be replacing the meeting room floor on June 20 and 21. The programs scheduled for those days will be held on the library side instead of the meeting room.  Angie chose Woodland Taupe luxury vinyl plank for the room.  Staff will take down tables, remove the chairs, refrigerator and other items to prep for the new floor.

 

  1. There is still no correspondence about county funding for fiscal year 19-20.

 

  1. The board reviewed the three estimates Angie has received for the roof. Two estimates were for asphalt shingles and the third was for a metal roof.  The board would like another quote for asphalt shingles as a comparison and possibly another one for a metal roof.  The board decided to hold off on a decision until other estimates are received.

 

New Business:

 

  1. The meeting room air conditioner was repaired. The issue was a bad condenser.  A bill has not been received for the repair.

 

  1. Angie contacted the board about window leaks and water damage that occurred the first week of June. The children’s area window had rain coming in due to a clogged gutter and bad seals.  The carpet was also wet by this window.  A window in the teen area wasn’t leaking but the drywall was wet.  Angie contacted Public Works Director Scott Church about these issues, Scott contacted Leerhoff Construction to evaluate if the windows needed repair or replacement.  It was determined that the caulking and foam backer needed to be replaced around the windows.  Leerhoff also removed the wet drywall and found mold.   They cleaned the mold, replaced the drywall, and fixed the windows.

 

  1. Since the library has been working on grants to purchase some new computers, Angie decided to go ahead and purchase new time management software for the public access computers. The new software should be compatible for about 5 years.  Angie also contacted the antivirus company and requested a new product that would be compatible with Windows 10.  The old version the library had was conflicting with Windows 10.  There was no charge for the new antivirus software since the library had recently purchased a three year license.  Both of these products have been added to the library computers.

 

Director’s Report:

 

Pam and Denise graciously went to the Madrid Community Endowment Fund ceremony since Angie was unable to attend.  They accepted a grant in the amount of $500 to help purchase new public access computers.  The library is also going to receive a grant for $250 to help purchase a new circulation computer thanks to the Hopkins Grove United Methodist Church Congregational Trust.

 

The Summer Reading Calendar has a couple of editions.  On July 15, Dan Hoy, a NASA Ambassador will be coming to the library to talk about the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11.  This program is for all ages and will be at 6:30 pm in the library’s meeting room.  On July 18 there will be a Kate Shelley Bridge Musical Preview at the library from 10 to 11 am. Actors will be in costume, sharing the story and singing songs from the show.  The show will be performed at Snus Hill that evening.

Correspondence and Communications:

 

  1. None to report

 

 

Unfinished Business:

 

  1. Angie presented another estimate for the meeting room floor from Carpet One. Kelli contacted another contractor about the floors but no estimate was received.  After comparing the estimates the board has decided to go ahead with Heritage Interiors, who the library has worked with in the past.  The other quotes were about the same price, but the old floor would not be removed if Carpet One did the work.  The board decided to go with a luxury vinyl plank instead of vinyl composite flooring that is currently in the room.  The cost is slightly higher for the plank, but in the long run will be cheaper because the library will not have the costs of waxing the floor.  The library would like to purchase the flooring and store it until an installation date can be determined, so that the cost of the project can be split between this fiscal year and next.  Angie asked if the board wanted to ok a flooring color choice, they trust Angie’s judgement.

On a motion by Pam, 2nd by Dave, to accept Heritage Interior’s luxury vinyl plank flooring estimate, going ahead and purchasing the product for this fiscal year and allowing Angie to decide the flooring color choice.

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

 

  1. There is still no correspondence about county funding for fiscal year 19-20. Last year the library did not receive anything until the end of May.

 

  1. Angie contacted Public Works Director Scott Church about the roofing and exterior lighting issues at the library. The lights were being replaced at the time of the meeting.  The reason for replacement was due to bad ballasts.  Angie has not received any estimates yet for the roof, but hopes to have something soon.

 

  1. Angie has completed the final form in the E-Rate process for this year (this federal program provides discounts on internet). Since Angie has completed this form she is hopeful that the discounts will kick in at the beginning of the new fiscal year July 1.

 

 

 

New Business:

 

  1. Angie demonstrated the new Adventure Pass program to the trustees. This will count towards the trustee education requirement for accreditation.

 

  1. Angie and the board reviewed the library’s building maintenance plan; discussed possible issues and items that have already been repaired.

 

 

Director’s Report:

 

Angie has not received any correspondence about the grants that were written to Hopkins Grove or the Madrid Community Endowment Fund.  The deadline for the Lowrey Trust is June 30.

 

The Summer Reading Calendar of events, sample reading logs, and summer flyer where given to the trustees.  This year instead of book bucks Steph is trying new reading incentives.  For ages 0-3 we will have the rubber ducky club.  Children and their parents will have activity sheets that focus on early literacy.  For each activity reached they will color in a duck on the reading log, when they reach a certain number they will be able to pick a prize.  Children ages 3 to 6th grade will be doing the read and bead program.  Children who register will receive a chain necklace, brag tag, and a reading log.  Once a reading goal has been met they can come to the library and visit the bead bank to receive beads for minutes read.  Children will be able to “level up” and may exchange beads to receive new ones. They will only be able to visit the bead bank once per day.  There will be a possibility to earn additional beads for attending events, volunteering or other activities.  In addition to the beads, if a child visits the bead bank 10 times they will receive an ice cream ticket, 15 times another prize and so on.  The teen and adult reading logs will be the same as last year.  Angie will show the calendar and flyer to the city council.
