MINUTES of the meeting of the Pitkin County Library Board of Trustees on September 21,

2016. The meeting was called to order at 12:10.

ROLL CALL: Trustees present: John Wilkinson, Barbara Smith, Barbara Reid, Austine Stitt,

Judy Wrigley, John Keleher and Judi Harris. Kathy Chandler, Librarian, was also present.

APPROVAL OF MINUTES: Austine Stitt made a motion to approve the minutes of the meeting

on August 10, 2016. Barbara Smith seconded the motion, which passed unanimously.

LIBRARIAN’S REPORT: Connie Baker of the Pitkin County Finance Department reported to

Kathy that the Library has not needed to borrow money from the County to complete the

addition and renovation and has enough money to pay for the $490,000 replacement of the

pitched roof with a surplus at the end of the year. These funds are a result of a combination of

reductions in scope of the construction project, inadvertent savings realized from delays in filling

open positions, and the releasing of all the contingencies in various lines of the construction

budget. The Board is awaiting a final accounting.

The fence has been installed around the children’s room amphitheater.

Martha Durgy has been working with Jon Busch on plans to show a series of films on weekend

evenings this winter. The Board is supportive of this program.
