Report Of The Library Director
The administration is moving forward on budget plans for 2012. Interlibrary Loan has been asked to track the number of items we borrow versus the number we lend. We are looking at the viability of discontinuing audiovisual loans through MeLCat and how that would affect our own patrons, who would then not be able to borrow audiovisual from MeLCat.
We are on track to standardize overdue fines and eliminate most mailed notices. All magazines and databases are being reconsidered as they come up for renewal. Due to staffing shortages, another self checkout machine has been added at the checkout desk to replace a staff station.
