Unfinished Business

There has been no news about the front door.  Jim Dekkenga said he would order it.  The two new computers were installed on July 9, and are being used.  Bernie made the motion to try selling the used computers, Nancy seconded the motion.  Carried

The basement carpet has been ordered.  It may be later in July before it is installed.  We haven’t heard from John Jobes.

Diane thought the ICN session was a waste of time.  The presenters didn’t have enough information. This was supposed to give the opportunity for libraries to use automation that aren’t already automated.

New Business

Diane handed in her full-time resignation effective Sept. 1, but will continue to serve as a co-director. Connie agreed to become a full time director if Ruth will fill in a few more days a month.

FYI :  The fuel contract was made with Coop at $2.14 a gallon.  Star Energy wanted $2.17.  $371.61 was received from the County Veteran Affairs.  Carol Seivert resigned from the Library Board effective  Aug. 1.

Respectfully submitted, Bernie Willadsen
