The board tabled the continued discussion about office equipment until we need to replace the equipment.
Apple Festival Participation – We are decorating the front window for the Apple Festival. We will look next year into a table downtown; however we will need a lot of volunteers to staff it.
NEW BUSINESS: It was noted during the sign-up for Preschool that many parents were coming into the library because they thought it was the Park District Building. There is no signage on the back of the building that identifies it as the library. Loretta will inquire about the cost of lettering for the back of the building to match the lettering on the front of the building – Black letters spelling out Sallie Logan Library.
FINANCE COMMITTEE: Met before the board meeting today. The Financial committee is asking the accountant for a different presentation of the financial statements.
