REPORT OF THE LIBRARY DIRECTOR

  • The café seems to be doing well during the first week. There were a few complaints about increased prices but staff is pleased with the food and we've had good reports about the coffee. The operator, Teri Merbler, is high energy and enthusiastic. (P. Papparelli still hasn't paid the first quarter rent. We'll send another invoice and remind him that he can pay by credit card).

TLN - Reg Williams, Wayne County Director, and I lobbied the personnel committee not to hire an interim director from outside. The Board voted to continue with the two inside employees to act as co-directors with additional compensation.

The two-day Fundraising workshop was disappointing; however, out of it came the idea to possibly hire a development person to be shared by Metro Net libraries. We're looking for people to interview.
We recently started a "Lucky Day" collection that is very popular with patrons.

OLD BUSINESS
