2015 April Minutes

4/2/15 RFL Trustee Meeting

Present: Karen Tufano, Kristin Hayden-West, Laurie Dana, Rebecca Mueller

Absent: Cami Richelli, Keith Franz

March minutes approved

Treasurer not present to give report

Rebecca will be asking the Friends for extra money for the book budget to get her through the rest of the fiscal year as it is running low. She will ask for an increase in the book budget for the next fiscal year

The state wants to cut library budgets across the board by ~25%. This will result in loss of Federal funds by ~ $100,00 as well. These cuts could affect inter library loans, loss of money for summer programs and consultants/staff training .The “one click” program could also be in jeopardy

Rebecca is waiting on a return call from Scott Newman from the Preservation Trust for a list of contractors and to hear back about the grant application for $250. She is also waiting to hear back from the county forester about tree pruning

Rod West and Douglas may be able to repair/replace the RFL sign out front. We also have a building permit to move the sign.

The concrete stairs into the main entrance will need to be repaired and replaced soon

Select Board meeting for 4/20: Kristin and Keith will attend to ask about forming a roof committee

Rebecca would like a UVM intern this fall to do projects and she would like to give them a stipend

We need to change our meeting dates for May and June, Kristen will send out a doodle to find out the best times for everyone

Agenda for May: 4th of July plans, update on select board meeting, library directors report

 

Respectfully submitted on 4/3/15: Karen Tufano
