Report of the Library Director
Jungle Java Express owners Eric and Laurel Hess will meet with E. Davis in the new year to begin discussion on negotiating a new lease (the present lease expires in May 2012); Davis will request direction from the board in January as to what terms they would like included in any new contract.
In January 2012, the Friends will be donating an additional $10,000 to the operating budget. Davis will work with the department heads to identify projects that could be funded with the additional money. Several board members asked that the administration think of a new, permanent way to publicly recognize and thank the Friends for their support.
