March 17, 2015
The Board of Trustees of the Hamilton Public Library met at 6:30 p.m. on March 17, 2015 at the library. Those present were Wanda Hansen, John Kolditz, Jim Noble, Bob Schneider and Librarian Nancy Denton. Guests included Sarah Warriner and David Morgan.
The meeting was called to order by President Noble.
Kolditz moved and Schneider seconded a motion to accept the February 17, 2015 minutes as corrected.
Kolditz moved and Schneider seconded a motion to pay the March bills. Motion carried.
Friends of the Library—Colvin reported that the mini-golf fundraiser is scheduled for April 18 during National Library Week. Sponsors have been secured for each hole. Door prizes will be awarded. The remodeling of the ladies restroom will be delayed until after the fundraiser.
Finance— The Certificate of Deposit – CD404200802 is due for renewal on April 16th, before next board meeting. There was discussion about whether it had to be rolled over or could have anything else done with it. Denton was on the understanding that the CD couldn’t be touched because it was stock given to the library. A motion was made by Kolditz to wait until next meeting, since the CD has a 10 day grace period, until Denton could do research on the terms of the CD. The motion was seconded by Phillips. Motion carried.
· Denton reported that no reports came from the schools about the Freedom Flix and Science Flix apps for the computer that she had been trying to get for the library. She decided to wait on it because if it wasn’t supported by the school, it probably wouldn’t be used as much as it could.
· The board were all invited to the April Open House on April 16, 2015 @ 6:00 in celebration of National Library Week.
Building and Grounds—No report.
The Budget committee of Noble, Kolditz and Librarian Denton (who just sat in to give information about current budget) met and discussed the budget before the meeting and it was presented to the City Council for approval. After some adjustments at that meeting the Council approved.
ADJOURNMENT—Kolditz moved and Schneider seconded a motion to adjourn. Meeting was adjourned at 7:44 p.m.
