September 11, 2019 Minutes

Motion was made by Kathy Witzman, seconded by Shannon Petersen to accept the August meeting minutes.

No communication.

No Public Forum.

Director’s report: Read over August Library report. Anna and staff are very busy and library use has been very good. Unfortunately most of the meeting was discussing the water damage that was done in the basement. Anna has been handling everything very well with the city, insurance, i.e. ways to clean and try to save the scrapbooks that are very water damaged. She is working closely with others to clean and do as much as can be done. The walls, shelves and possibly flooring need much repair or replacing.  Thanks so much, Anna, for ALL the extra work you have done. Insurance should cover everything so the library budget doesn’t suffer. Also, Anna will be finding cost effective ways to get items scanned and preserved.

Old Business: The strips for the stairs will be installed shortly. The sign should be in this fall. All library activities have been moved to the Senior Center until further notice, and we are all set for the Football Hall of Fame game Open House.

New business: No new business.

Next meeting will be Wednesday, October 9th, 2019 at 4:00pm.

Motion by Kathy Witzman and seconded by Peggy Anderson to adjourn at 4:35 pm. Motion passed.
