REPORT OF THE LIBRARY DIRECTOR

  • The Summer Reading program has proved to be the busiest ever with over 4100 children registered - over 1000 more than last year. There are 435 adults registered for the adult program. The tremendous library activity can be attributed to these numbers. The new teen librarians have seen great success from their efforts, drawing more teens and their siblings to the program.

A review of the employee pension contribution rate is due for discussion during 2008 budget planning.

The roof survey from Professional Services Industries (PSI) has been received and will be reviewed and discussed for budget planning.
The annual Friends Strategic Planning meeting was held this week. The Friends realize that 2nd Hand Prose is probably at sales capacity due to space restraints. They presented a suggestion to have a yearly tent sale; however, storage of books is an issue.
The Abitibi paper retriever bin will arrive some time next week. The next "Connections" will feature an article on this recycling program, which will be open to the public, to go along with our "Green" initiative.

OLD BUSINESS

  • A panel of local library directors will be selected to review the submitted resumes and recommend the top five candidates (with the option to interview additional qualified candidates if resumes warrant).
