A motion was made by Bernie and seconded by Tammy that we charge $1.50 up from $1.00 for Interlibrary Loan books.  The motion carried.  Thirteen books were loaned out through InterlibraryLoan last month. 

New Business
The 2009-2009 annual report was reviewed.

It was decided that we will be closed Saturday August 15th for Days of Olde celebration.

Tammy made a motion and Bernie seconded it that we have no Policy for Sex Offenders at this time.  After much discussion it was decided to withdraw the motion.

Laurie reported they combined the two CDs of $8,500.00 and $6345.00 into one CD and they will mature every 32 days and renew so they will be available when we need them.

Connie would like to find someone for snow removal.  We are all to think about who would be a good person for the job.

Diane suggested that we might want to think about replacing a computer out front.

Laurie, Connie and maybe Tammy will go to Sibley and look at the new carpet that was installed at the library.

The meeting was adjourned.  The next meeting will be September 9, 2009.

Respectfully submitted,
