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.

September 24, 2013 meeting minutes read and approved.
Treasurer: Treasurer gave report on our financial status. The Annual Dinner and Election cost $2,600.
Membership: We currently have 91 individual memberships, 62 family, 186 seniors, 8 sponsors, 94 life, 8 student, and 3 associates for a total of 452 members. Membership will be sending out 12 renewals in November. We received $45 in donations this past month.
Newsletter: Winter newsletter will be coming out sometime between mid to late December. Cecelia suggested that we hire a new editor for the position. She requested that we at least think about it.
Programming: The Annual Dinner and Election was a great success. There were 83 reservations and 19 ballots were returned to us from members who could not attend. Still planning of "G Dog" film by Freida Lee Moc. It was decided that the price for the ticket would stay at $10. Money will be donated to Homeboy. Grand Annex will seat about 120 people. February 22nd "Afternoon with Four First Ladies" (Washington, Adams, Madison, and Polk) by the Palos Verdes AAUW (American Association of University Women.) The program will be about 45 minutes and will cost us about $75.00. So far for March we have nothing. In April we may have "The Bell of Amherst" which is a play based on the life of Emily Dickinson. We need a permanent Program Chair. Think about it for next meeting.
Book Buying: Everything is starting to work with Barnes and Noble. Still in preliminary stages of ordering books.
Website: The usual updates to Board Meeting page and advertising for upcoming events.
All reports accepted as read.
Senior Librarian's Report:
New Business: Officers were elected. Current board members will be serving the same posts as last year.
There was a discussion about what to do with the various ephemera. Can we store it in the library? Do we need to store the physical objects instead of just the computer files? Can we have the San Pedro Historical Society Store them.? Discussion may be pursued in future meetings.
Adjourned 7:20 p.m. Next meeting Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. Public welcome.
