Loretta presented information to the board about purchasing a new desk and computer for the children’s
department. She informed us that the library had received a $1,780 donation and that $355 was
earmarked for children. It was mentioned that it would be a good idea to get a desk that would allow the
hard drive to be locked in part of the desk to protect it. Bill Center is looking into getting a donated
computer for the desk. A motion was made by Debbie Martin to have Loretta look for that type of desk
and use the earmarked funds for children to pay for the desk. This was seconded by Jeanne Goforth. All
approved. Motion carried.
An amnesty period is currently being researched further by Loretta and will be tabled for now.
Loretta is looking into starting a Lego Club at the library. She has applied for a grant from Walmart to help
fund the initial purchase of Legos. She looks for prices on the Legos and found that it will cost
approximately $150 for 1500 Legos. She spoke with other Librarians who have Lego Clubs and it was
suggested that we have 10,000 Legos to start the club. The Legos will be kept behind the front desk. It
was suggested that Loretta determine how many Legos would be needed and purchase them. Motion
