Trustees of Damon Memorial Library
April 15, 2010
Attending: Celeste Duffy, Nina Mazloff, Connie Marr, Stephanie Poh, Mary Ritter, Edna Sexton
The Chair, Celeste Duffy, called the meeting to order at 6:03 p.m.
The minutes of the March 18, 2010 meeting were reviewed and approved. Motion to approve minutes-Poh. Seconded by Mazloff with unanimous approval.
Public forum - Sue Reynolds, Sam Klatt. Sam would like to put up a plaque at the library for his Eagle Scout project. He had some ideas and there was discussion on them. The Trustees were in support of the project but asked him to talk to someone on the Historical Commission on restrictions in regards to size, materials and placement.
Report of the Chair - Celeste and the other Trustees said thank you and we will miss you to Mary Ritter as this was her last Trustee meeting.
Director-The historical books that were found in Virginia have been returned and placed in the Local History Room. The Central Region will close in May but the company that does the deliveries will be the same. The times for delivery will change so there might be a slight delay in patrons receiving items. The Town Manager is forming a committee to look at capital planning for the next five years for town departments. We will need to be thinking of projects that might be needed for the library.
Dates to remember: May 5-Stan’s farewell party with staff and Trustees, May 12-Volunteer Appreciation party.
