Correspondence and Communications:

 

  1. An email was received from the State Library of Iowa about the library’s current tier level status and accreditation expiration date. This year the library does not have to reapply for accreditation or tier level status.

 

  1. A Publisher’s Weekly article was shared with the board. 2019 began with the Trump administration wanting the elimination of Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).  Instead the IMLS ended up with a $10 million increase in the final budget, including a $6.2 million increase for the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).  This is the largest increase in LSTA funding in 12 years.  Also in the article it was mentioned that a private equity firm has purchased OverDrive from Rakuten USA.  Overdrive is the leading library e-book vendor, and is the platform for Bridges (the library’s eBook/audiobook consortium).  No one really knows what will happen with the acquisition, but Angie will keep the board informed.

 

  1. The State Library also sent an email about public libraries reaching record high eBook and audiobook usage in 2019. 73 public library systems in five countries loaned over 1 million digital books last year, this included Iowa’s Bridge consortium.

 

 

 

Unfinished Business:

 

  1. Angie was satisfied with the warranty and delivery terms for the meeting room chairs from Business Furniture Warehouse. The chairs were delivered the morning of the board meeting.  The chairs look great, but Angie soon realized that they do not stack like the old chairs.  The new chairs fall forward if someone would climb on them.  Angie has suggested to purchase a cart to store the extras when not in use to ensure no one would get hurt.  Also there was discussion on the old chairs and what to do with them.  Angie will discuss it with Mary Jo.

On a motion by Pam, 2nd by Alice, to approve the purchase of a cart for the extra meeting room chairs.

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

 

  1. The final revision of the library logo was shown to the board. Angie and other staff are not in love with it.  It was decided to start again.  This item has been tabled until the next meeting.
  2. Unfortunately, Angie was very sick the day of the County Supervisors meeting so she did not attend. Steph sent a copy of the library’s annual report to the library director in Boone so she could give it to the supervisors.

 

 

New Business:

 

  1. The board reviewed the City of Madrid’s personnel (employee) handbook. This is what the library follows as its personnel policy.

On a motion by Pam, 2nd by Kelli, the board has reviewed and the library will follow the city’s personnel handbook.

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

 

  1. There are some lights that need ballasts replaced again. The budget is still pretty tight after other library repairs.  Angie and the board want to stay within budget so it was decided to wait a few months to see where the budget is before replacing those ballasts.

 

 

  1. Holiday closures for 2020 were discussed. The closures are as follows:
  • Monday, May 25 closed for Memorial Day.
  • Friday, July 3 and Saturday, July 4 closed for Independence Day.
  • Closing at 12 pm on Thursday, September 3, closed Friday, September 4, Saturday, September 5 and Monday, September 7 for Labor Day.

  • Closed Thursday, December 31 and Friday, January 1, 2021.

On a motion by Kelli, 2nd by Alice, the library will be closed for the aforementioned holidays for 2020.

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

Correspondence and Communications:

 

  1. The library received an official letter from the State Library about its Open Access/Interlibrary Loan Reimbursement statement of direct deposit. This year the library received $502.66 (last year was $577.88). Angie reminded the board that in the future that amount will be reduced due to the new IA Shares courier service.

 

Unfinished Business:

 

  1. Dave showed the board two samples of meeting room chairs he found at Business Furniture Warehouse. The cost is more than the chairs Angie purchased online but are more durable.  The majority of the board and staff liked one sample over the other.  Warranty and delivery information was not given to Dave when he picked out the chairs.

On a motion by Dave, 2nd by Alice, to approve the purchase of new meeting room chairs from Business Furniture Warehouse if Angie is satisfied with the warranty and delivery terms.

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

 

  1. Angie has requested that the trust account be amended for the current fiscal year to a higher amount than previously voted on. When the budget was discussed last year, the library did not know there would be sizable donations for this year.

On a motion by Kelli, 2nd by Dave, to approve to amended the trust account for this fiscal year to $10,000.

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

 

  1. The requested revisions for the library logo were not completed at the time of the meeting. Angie was told by the high school art teacher that the student has a deadline of the end of the year to finish the logo.  Angie will present the revised logo at the next meeting.

 

  1. Board meeting dates for 2020 were discussed at the last meeting. The September meeting falls the day after Labor Day.  It will be difficult to gather everything needed for the meeting since the library is closed for the holiday.  It was decided to have the September meeting on Thursday that month at 5:30 pm.

On a motion by Alice, 2nd by Kelli, to approve moving the September meeting to Thursday, September 10 at 5:30.

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

 

New Business:

 

  1. Amy Kniffen was given her yearly written evaluation.

 

  1. Angie updated the board on how the new IA Shares courier service is doing. Amy is still learning the ins and outs of the service.  The library is still using the post office for sending out some interlibrary loans to ensure faster delivery times.  Angie is hoping that once the service has been running for a while delivery times will be faster, eliminating most interlibrary loans sent through the post office.

 

  1. Angie and Steph have contacted the elementary school principal and Police Chief Tasler about behavior issues in the library. After talking to both of them, the issues are happening at school as well.  It was requested that Tasler make more “surprise” visits to help, which he has and things are improving.  The issue of football being played in the back of the library was also discussed.   A more serious issue was discussed.  A minor child brought a weapon into the library and used it to damage some of the library’s property.  Steph was able to obtain the weapon.  She took it to Chief Tasler, and he took care of the situation.  The child is to pay for the damaged book, and is not allowed at the library or on library grounds.

 

Director’s Report:

 

At the November meeting Angie commented that she needed to refile the Form 470 for E-rate discounts.  Angie was notified that there was a mistake and after doing some checking she was informed she needed to file the form for a third time.  Which she did.

 

The library’s silent auction has raised $1,097.00 so far.  Some items have not been picked up yet. Angie knows the library will raise more than last year’s total of $1,126.00.  She will give the board the final total at the next meeting.  The library was open until 5 pm for the Christmas Extravaganza on December 7th.  Alice came and helped serve cookies and cider from 12 to 5 pm in the meeting room while Angie stayed on the library side.  309 people came to the library that day.

 

Angie wanted to let the board know that there will be a lot of policy reviews in 2020 as a part of accreditation standards.

 

Amy and Steph are working on a grant to the Lowrey Foundation to help with the Summer Reading Program in 2020.  This grant is due at the end of December, Angie will let the board know if the request is granted.

 

Upcoming programs include:

  • Early Out Cookie Decorating on Wednesday, December 11 at 2:30 pm. The Friends of the Madrid Library are generously paying for the supplies.
