We discussed the carpeting project. The quote from the moving company is forth coming.
Maria will ask Lawrence Huff from Air Duct Plus if mini-splits would be a good option for the library and what the approximate cost would be.
Pat shared the stories and enthusiasm for libraries shared at the conference and is eager to advocate for the Library in the community. She also learned more about having animals for programs. We discussed writing/speaking to the select board to add the library as an exception to the dog policy.
We discussed the innovative program ideas Ali learned about at the conference particularly for teenagers. Maria shared that transportation is a challenge for many teens and some seniors and attendance hasn’t been great for many Teen programs. Ali suggested tapping teens who do come to take a lead in designing programs. We discussed having the School’s Out Book club come up with an idea for a program to put on for their peers and themselves when they meet again in the Fall.
Alison suggested getting a picnic table and Adirondack chairs for the yard. Maria will ask the friends if they could donate a picnic table. Alison will research some “polywood” Adirondack chairs to look at our next meeting.
Pat is planning on introducing herself to the principal and teachers at the school. She will come to the next school library tour.
The Friends will meet Tuesday June18th at 2pm.
Maria shared the steps needed to complete the library moving/carpeting project. Most likely, we would need to be closed for a few days.
Jack moved to adjourn. The motion was seconded by Pat. Meeting adjourned at 2:30pm.
Alison Hayford, secretary
