Director’s Report

April circulation was lousy, we are at the exact same cumulative total for year to date as 2016. Good attendance at the watercolor workshop and delighted children with the May the Fourth Be With You party, with plans to expand next year.

Old Business:

Summer reading preparations are underway with a theme of “Reading by Design” to begin June 1. Class visits will happen the week of May 15th. We are one of the lucky libraries to receive a visit from author William Durbin on June 20th.

Further research has shown that we can get a charging station for much less than the company we’d been working with. We will pursue other options.

New Business:

Annual Action plan was examined and discussed. Motion by Peterson with second by Dalton, motion approved to accept the action plan as presented.

Director performance review was held. Review in file.
