As Pitkin County moves into their new offices, they will discontinue use of the Dunaway Meeting Room and will remove their recording equipment.  The Board asked Kathy to check into the purchasing of recording equipment by the Library.

A committee consisting of Austine Stitt, John Keleher, and Barbara Smith has been appointed to nominate officers for next year.

Tammy Benninger spoke to the Board about her duties as Children’s Librarian.  She organizes and runs the children’s area including ordering and weeding the collection and recently rearranging the layout of the room.  She is in charge of Baby Story Time which has become so successful it has outgrown its space since there are frequently more than 60 people in attendance.  Tammy has suggested moving the program to the Community Meeting Room. She also organizes several other programs and has replaced older computers with new Ipads.
