Clifton Community Library
Board of Trustees Minutes
August 18, 2020
Present: President Cindy Whitmore, Nicole Curry, Don Lashomb, JoAnn Young, Ted Tate, Library Director Susan (Kate) Kosier, Sandy Griffin.
The meeting was held in the pavilion and called to order at 6:08 pm by President Cindy Whitmore.
Sandy says Bill will be cleaning the hallway area and bathroom on Wednesday mornings after court. She attended the town board meeting and reports that Supervisor Hooven will not open the building anytime soon but is fine with paying for extra cleaning. She also says that Nickie
Nolan asked about having Book Club meetings in the community room, but the town said this would not work now and the pavilion was suggested as an alternative location.
Minutes of the previous meeting were approved: Motion by Don, seconded by Nicole.
Financial Report accepted: Motion by Nicole, seconded by JoAnn.
Report of the Library Director was accepted.
We need to complete the last remaining portions of the pandemic response paperwork. Don will fill in the blanks this weekend and email the files out for other trustees’ perusal.
Library is stocked with adequate supplies of masks, gloves, and cleaners.
All assistant librarians are back to work.
Until we find a new treasurer we will hold off one giving minutes signed minutes to Community Bank to update their information on us.
Library will be open for curbside pickup on Mondays and Thursdays (days when Bill will be cleaning).
There is an uptick in the number of books going out via curbside service as people seem to be learning about it and adjusting.
Next month will be JoAnn’s last meeting. We need another trustee and it should be someone who could fill a treasurer position. Cindy thinks Annie Pickering would be a good choice. JoAnn thinks Patty Perry might be a possibility. We will ask them and also advertise in the Bargain Hunter.
Kate estimates she’s currently working 20 hours per week, down from typical summer hours (35).
Next monthly meeting: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at 6:00 pm.
Meeting was adjourned at 6:30 pm. Motion by Don, seconded by JoAnn.
