Josh Meyers called the meeting to order at 5:31pm.


The minutes from the October meeting were read and approved with a motion by Curtis to approve and seconded by Michelle.  Motion passed.  There was not a meeting in November 2018 as a quorum was not present.  We do not have a scheduled December meeting.


Julie reported a balance of $42,194.74 with $29,349.98 in the checking account.  Tina made the motion to accept this report and to pay outstanding bills.  Becky seconded and motion passed.


An e-mail survey of members was made by Julie Day in December concerning giving the Library Director and her substitutes a Christmas bonus.  This action was approved by board members and Jeana received a check for $100.00 and her two substitutes, Suzan Whitehead and Marsha Keithley were given checks for $25.00 each. 


Jeana reported that a technological grant was received from the A.P. Green Foundation for $11,830.  Michelle made the motion to order five computers (4 for patron use and 1 for the librarian), 1 printer/scanner, and 1 I-pad with the funds of this grant.  Curtis seconded.  Motion passed.


A second grant has been received from the State Library in the amount of $3,325.00 which is to be used for the 2019 Summer Reading Program.


Jeana is working on plans for the Library 75th Anniversary celebration during National Library Week April 7th - 13th.  An Open House at the library will be held sometime during this week with refreshments to be served.  The Friends of The Library will be helping.  The Friends are sponsoring an essay contest among the students at our local school.  The topic is "What the Library Means In Your Life."  Prizes will be awarded.  The Friends will also be having a fundraiser during this time to benefit the library.


Jeana is supervising an individual who is performing 30 community service hours with time spent working at the library.


Curtis made a motion to adjourn.  Julie seconded.  Motion passed.

Meeting adjourned at 6:15pm.
