Because of my superior location near the New Book shelves, I get first crack at the new items that come in, including the chapter books, the picture books, even nonfiction and biographies. Did you know that a biography is a book about a real person? Today I snuck a new biography about Peter Roget, the person who made Roget’s Thesaurus. Guess what? A thesaurus is not a dinosaur. It’s a list of words, and the ones that mean the same thing are all grouped together. Peter Roget always made lists of things, from when he was a very little boy, and one day those lists became his first thesaurus.You can even browse a version of Roget’s Thesaurus online.

CommunicationsE. Davis had previously forwarded to the Board communication received from a patron via the Contact Us portion of the library website.
Davis and Business Services accountant D. McHugh met with Canton Township Finance Director Wendy Trumbull to discuss the possibility of pre-payment of the building bond. Concern primarily centered around the fact that the library’s bond was bundled with that of the township. Based on their discussion, the township would not object should the library choose to do this. Pre-payment of the $2.3 million could be made in April 2016, saving the library $230,000 in interest payments. The library could also pay down some of the debt and refinance at a lower rate, or make additional principal payments. Trumbull will follow up to procure a schedule of options and notify Davis.
Davis and Trustee S. Foster attended the State of the School District meeting. Superintendent Michael Meissen made plain his intent to ramp up participation with the school system’s community partners.
