The meeting was called to order at 4:06 pm.  Members present: Carolyn Olsen, Peggy Anderson, Kathy Witzman, Shannon Petersen and Library Director Anna Amundson. Absent: Marcia Bergquist and liaison Al Stanaway. We did not have minutes of the October meeting.  They will be read and approved at the December meeting. Anna Amundson will reconstruct.  

No communication. No Public Forum.

Director’s report: Stair safety strips have been installed.  We have gotten some great feedback (compliments). Anna is working on a code of conduct for the library and looking into the existing library policies.  These can be discussed in the new year. The Winter Reading program will run January 6th – February 28th this year – just 8 weeks. We are also extending the Summer Reading program to eight weeks as well. Anna will be at the school as well as Iron Range Tykes with pop-up libraries and reading times throughout the next few months. The mold abatement clean-up is nearing completion and the room is almost ready. The company has gear to collect and a few books to check in on; Anna has shelving quotes, and the wall needs a coat of Killz paint. 

Old Business:  Carolyn Olsen will conclude her time on the board on December 31st. Anna will chat with Gary Skalko regarding this. It will be brought to the city council meeting.

New business:  New circulation dates are up for consideration – Anna will gather some info on this for January.

Next meeting will be Wednesday, December 11th, 2019 at 4:00pm. Motion by Kathy Witzman and seconded by Carolyn Olsen to adjourn at 4:59 pm. Motion passed.

Submitted by Anna Amundson for Shannon Petersen, Secretary
