Minutes, May 2020

Richmond Free Library
Trustees Meeting
May 7, 2020 6:30PM

Meeting via Zoom

Present: Jana Brown, Martha Nye, Ellen Crary, Jenna Bisset, Kathie Templin, Rebecca Mueller
Minutes Approved

Motion to approve March minutes was approved unanimously.

 

Treasurer’s Report:

  • Kathie received a report from Connie on March 18, 2020. $138,956 has been spent as of March 18th, and the library budget is tracking appropriately for this point in the fiscal year.  Payroll on target as of that date.

 

Librarian’s Report:

Community room rentals are likely to be flat for the rest of the year so this line item may not meet the budget target.  A question was raised about paying the elevator service charges because servicing hasn’t happened since the library closed in March.  The pest control contractors have been paid for their work on the exterior of the building.  The electric bill is likely to be decreased as a result of the library closure.  Wendy and Rebecca have been at work in the library building.  Overdrive has seen a lot of use and new patron card requests are coming in.

 

Last week the library re-launched curbside pickup.  Wendy and Rebecca also working on reader advisory projects, brainstorming how to take youth programming online, and a StoryWalk project.  Rebecca has also done some informational videos with MMCTV.

 

Closure due to COVID-19:  Rebecca has been receiving almost daily updates from the VT Department of Libraries.  There is still no projected opening date for the library, and no recommended timeframe for reopening has been suggested.  Rebecca will continue to monitor guidance from the various state agencies.

 

Motion to enter Executive Session to discuss HR issues made by Ellen.  Jana seconded the motion.

 

Executive Session ended.

 

Motion to adjourn.  Meeting adjourned at 7:28PM

 

The next meeting will be June 4th at 6:30PM via Zoom.
