The Board meets every last Tuesday of the month starting at 6:00 p.m. Along with the Senior Librarian, we discuss what we can do to spread the love of reading and to improve literacy. The meeting is open to the public so join us and be a part of your community.
Tuesday, February 25, 2014. Call to order 6:05 p.m. Ten members and Senior Librarian attended.
Brian Asher came to talk to the board before the meeting. His proposal for July concert at St. Peters Episcopal Church would feature his mother, Shakeh, and himself. The Latin based program will also include Mexican and Hispanic based folk songs. Shakeh will have four or five Spanglish songa to add a little flavor to the program. The songs will be accompanied by the piano, cello, and a nylon-based acoustic guitar. The program should run about 75 minutes without interruptions. Board requested that the lyrics be as pleasant as possible unlike last year. We will be printing the flyers and posters for the event.
Minutes for January 28,2014 meeting read and approved with corrections.
Treasurer: Treasurer gave report on our financial status.
Membership: 17 renewals, 7 new members, 3 new life members (making 98 total life members), $70 in donations, 361 paid members, 118 in grace period, for a total of 471 memberships. 16 renewal notice will be sent out very shortly. Membership questioned whether cards were issued at the monthly book sales regardless of whether "card issued" was on the new/renewal envelopes. Selma assured that we check the envelopes and Yumi assured them that 100% of the subscribers received new cards when they paid for the membership at the table on those Fridays.
Programming: Selma requested that microphones be used by the performers during our events as it can be difficult to hear what they are saying at times. Yumi requested the Senior Librarian to look into the cost of cordless clip-on microphones since the library can use them for other events also. He will look into it. The Four First Ladies event was a great success. It was very well attended and was very interesting since we never presented that type of show before
Newsletter: Cecelia quit the newsletter format and will be sending out a one-page newsflyer instead. The board has not found a replacement for Cecelia so far. Yumi asked if board was still interested in hiring a newsletter editor/producer since her son had just graduated with a degree in journalism and would be very interested in taking on the position. Cecelia felt that if the one-page newsflyer was sufficient for the job, we would not need to fill that position at this time. Discussions may happen in the future if we need to pursue this any further. But for now, the newsflyer appears to be it.
Book Buying: JoAnn asked for suggestions for the next purchase.
Website: Due to the purchase of a new computer, the website is running behind a few weeks. Hopefully, everything will be caught up by next week.
Senior Librarian's Report:
Old Business: Jerry resigned his position as president and opted to run for treasurer, Pat accepted nomination for president, and Millie resigned from treasurer position. Board accepted Jerry's and Pat's choices. This means VP is now vacant.
New Business: Yumi had an email from a person who wanted a copy of the mosteciolli receipe in our first cookbook. She is also requesting a copy of our second cookbook. The information was passed onto Georgia our corresponding secretary. She will find out if that receipe exists and how much the shipping will cost.
World Book Night. We can request books from the organization so that we can donate them to perhaps Beacon House? Further discussion next month.
Adjorned at 7:22, next meeting Tuesday, March 1, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. Public welcome.
