Library board report

Posted by Laura Haskins - Library Director on January 28, 2010

The library board met last night for their regular quarterly meeting.

In old business, the board reviewed a draft bylaws update, specified a few changes, and agreed that the revised draft would be circulated by email for approval.

Also discussed were strategies for increasing circulation of less-visible items. Tracie Merrill described a monthly-themed book display she has undertaken as a project, and asked board members to suggest titles they feel would be appropriate when she emails them with each month’s subject. Several suggestions were made at the meeting for the upcoming Black History Month display.

Library Director Shirly Giles submitted a report that she will be attending the state library convention in Anchorage in March, part of her continuing education required under the terms of the library’s grant from the State of Alaska.

Proposed lighting and shelving upgrades were reviewed for new board members. Tracy Philpot made a suggestion of a potential source for more footstools that could be used to access the more neglected books on the highest shelves and agreed to undertake recruiting that donation.

The next regularly-scheduled board meeting will be April 28.
