Treasurer’s Report:

Possible Sovernet credit-Tony to research

Materials line increased 10% ($40 annually) on Expenditure Budget due to Listen-Up Vermont. Many library constituents use this service. We had a lengthy conversation in regards to the benefits of continuing this program. More discussions to come.

Automation Over Time (for Tony) discussion

Librarian’s Report: automation going very well

Unfinished Business:

Maintenance: We will be coming up with a building operations/trouble shooting guide, which will help anyone using the building who may have unique situations arise (ie. boiler switch, fireplace, elevator, etc.).
