The library Board of Trustees met on Thursday July 19 at 7:30PM in the library board room. Highlights of the meeting were:
- Donna Fletcher, the library’s strategic planning consultant, facilitated a Board Input Session in the beginning of the meeting. The discussion focused on strengths, weaknesses, and what the ideal library would be like. Data collected at this meeting will be compiled with data from other sessions and will be used to create the final strategic plan.
- The Friends of the Library representative reported that the final sales from the June book sale were just under $1,800. Money raised by the Friends supports their mission of (1) encouraging broad-based community involvement, utilization, and membership in the library and (2) providing volunteers and financial support to enhance and promote library programming, resources, and services.
- The Board unanimously approved two ordinances, both of which are available in the library for review, and as per requirement, will be published in the Lincolnwood Review on July 26. The first ordinance is regarding the special building and maintenance levy, and the second is the notice of public hearing for the budget and appropriation ordinance.
- Two Trustees, Jim Berger and Charlene Bartlett, were appointed to audit the secretary’s minutes and other records for fiscal year 2011-2012.
The next board meeting will be on Thursday August 16, 2012 at 7:30PM at the library.
