Director’s Report: Maria has reviewed the computer/checkout equipment needs with Michael and we will only need computers and monitors which is estimated to cost $1,580 and would come from appropriated funds.
Maria spoke with Brad Harriman and the walkways will be replaced and ADA compliant.
She has suggested a WiFi Usage policy.
The Friends are having a plant sale on May 26th. Alison suggested the friends use the plant sale as an opportunity to have people join the “Friends of the Library”. Maria will have signup sheets available.
Accepted (JM, JP)
New Computer purchases: John made a motion to use up to $2,000 from appropriated funds to purchase two new computers, two new monitors and to cover any costs associated with set-up. Seconded by Judy. Passed unanimously.
Leave time: We discussed proposed changes to mirror the town’s policy. We discussed the potential cost of hiring substitutes for employees using leave time as more time may be used for vacation. Leave time would be available after 6 months. We discussed giving people the opportunity to use their leave before they’ve earned it if they are sick.
Maria shared that the policy was discussed with the staff and they are all in favor of the proposed changes.
We discussed adding a line to give as much notice as possible when taking leave.
Maria will check with the town on how they word the first year leave and any other language used in their leave policy and we will carry on the discussion at our next meeting.
Adjourned at 4:30.
