September 9, 2009

Minutes of trustees' meeting

The Ocheyedan Library Board met on Wednesday September 9, 2009.  President Laurie called the meeting to order.  Members present were Laurie, Carol, Tammy Bernie, Don, and Connie.

Bernie moved that the minutes from the August meeting be approved.  Tammy seconded the motion and it carried.

The bills were read by Connie.  Don made a motion they be approved and sent to the city council.

Treasurer’s report was presented.  Bank balance of $23,244.52.  Trust and Agency $19,169.52.  General fund $4,075.00.

Connie reported that we are down 91 books checked out last month.  This is due to the school closing.

Unfinished Business

Sam Anderson has agreed to shovel snow this winter.

New Business

Emily Dorr will be renting the Mound Room for the month of September at a charge of $60.00, which she has already paid.

Laurie and Connie went to Sibley Library open house.  They gave a report about Sibley’s plan of action to remodel their building, putting in new carpet and painting.  Connie will check if the insurance will cover the books if they are out of the building.

Bernie and Tammy volunteered to review the long range plan.

It was suggested to apply for the Community Foundation Grant and use it to get a new computer out front with Windows 7.  Connie will check with Diane about what is needed.

Connie will call a plumber to fix the trap in the bathroom.  Connie will also call for estimates on painting and check again on the carpeting.  It was discussed when would be a good time to do the remodeling.  Possibly in the spring and would probably have to be closed for a couple of weeks.

Respectfully submitted,
Carol Iedema
