Board of Trustees Minutes
September 22, 2020

Absent: Ted Tate.
The meeting was held in the pavilion and called to order at 6:05 pm by President Cindy Whitmore.
Minutes of the previous meeting were approved: Motion by Nicole, seconded by Cindy.
Financial Report accepted.
Report of the Library Director was accepted.
Kathy Gill is approved as a new trustee. This is JoAnn’s last meeting.
Brittany Rixon has moved to Albany and is no longer working for us.
Supervisor Hooven is open to the library being open, for (up to) three patrons in at one time.
The downstairs community room will not be open. We will continue curbside pickup, but starting October 5 we will have the library open on Mondays and Thursdays. Normal protocol will be for patrons to call ahead and schedule a 15-minute visit, but if someone stops in and there is room they will not be turned away (at librarian’s discretion). We will need to put up a sneeze guard at the desk (which Bill Griffin will do when he gets a chance) and have a thermometer to check temperatures upon entry. There will be “six feet” decals on the floor, and a sign outside the door telling patrons that they need masks and gloves. Handled books will be quarantined, not returned to the shelves. Certain items in the children’s room will need to be put away. Computers and keyboards will be covered and seating roped off.
We will have a meeting for the 2021 budget downstairs on Monday 28 th at 6pm.
Next monthly meeting: Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at 6:00 pm.
Meeting was adjourned at 6:50 pm. Motion by Don, seconded by Kathy.
