The regularly scheduled meeting of the Board of Trustees was called to order at 4:30 p.m. by President Sharon Farris. In attendance were Mary Taylor, Susan Punzelt, George Griffin, Roxanne Michels, Ryan Fehrmann, Greg McHenry and Librarian Teresa Pennington. Absent were Trustees Amy McGilvrey and Aaron Rhoads.
Minutes of Previous Meeting: MOTION: Griffin, second Michels to approve minutes. Motion carried.
Finance Report: MOTION: Fehrmann, second Griffin to approve report, to recognize March 2013 checks and deposits, and to authorize the purchase of 18 adult fiction, four adult nonfiction, and one young adult title from Baker & Taylor. Motion carried.
Book Committee: No report.
House Committee: Pennington reported that the Paris Rotary Club will be serving the library by completing some interior work downstairs this summer.
Librarian’s Report (Statistics): MOTION: McHenry, second Griffin to approve report. Motion carried.
Friends of the Library: Pennington reported that with the $1000 the FOTL gave from the book sale the library purchased a second laptop for the circulation desk, a book cart and a security mirror for the northeast stairwell.
Unfinished Business: IHLS will follow current Illinet Interlibrary Loan Code by circulating items according to owning libraries’ circulation policies. This is not new to our library, as the former Lincoln Trail Libraries System also followed Illinet code.
*Since the cost of using Unique Management System, a collection agency module for use through SHARE, costs $250 annually plus a per patron cost, the library will decide after a trial period whether to pay for this module.
*For the library to become PCI compliant so it can continue to accept credit card payments online through the Illinois Funds/E-Pay Program, Pennington need only complete and submit a SAQ A v2.0 form.
New Business: The board nominated the proposed slate of officers to be presented at the May meeting:
Greg McHenry—President, Ryan Fehrmann—Vice President, Mary Taylor--Secretary.
*MOTION: McHenry, second Punzelt to approve the proposed Library Budget May 2013-April 2014. Motion carried.
*In order to qualify for the 2014 Per Capita Grant, the library will conduct an environmental scan of the community as part of the application.
Librarian’s Announcements: All libraries in IHLS will begin using the new SHARE catalog tomorrow, April 9.
Meeting adjourned 5:40 p.m. Next meeting is Monday, May 13, 2013.
Mary Taylor, Secretary
