·         President Karen called the meeting to order at 5:46 PM

·         The minutes from the April 11, 2016 meeting were read by Page. Janice made a motion to accept the minutes as read. Terry seconded the motion. The motion passed.

·         Margaret read the Treasurer’s report. A copy is in the minute’s binder. Margaret stated that Julie Day did get the new Savings account open, and the Summer Reading Club CD name was changed to CD #1 which is a 24 month CD. Margaret pointed out that the Library had received Alice Spiers Memorial funds, and the deposit is shown on the report. Tricia made a motion to accept the Treasurer’s report and to pay the bills throughout the summer. Janice seconded the motion. The motion passed.

·         Margaret read the Library Report. She pointed out that she had submitted a total of 12 work hours for her Summer Reading Program preparation. She stated that the rest of the Bunch-Chappell Donation had been spent on Children’s Nonfiction books.

·         Old Business:

The Board discussed the manual. Margaret stated that an addition needed to be made to the manual in regards to minors due to the fact that there are minors that live part time in Wellsville with their parent or guardian that is a resident of Wellsville. These minors have been unable to obtain their own Library card because they do not live in Wellsville year round. The board decided that if the minors’ parent or guardian is a resident of Wellsville, then the minor, under age 18, may from now on obtain their own Library card. Margaret will update the manual with this decision. Joyce made a motion to approve the manual with the addition. Page seconded the motion. The motion passed.

·         The board voted on the construction bid. Janice made a motion to accept the bid from Chris Davis, Steve Walton. Joyce seconded the motion. The motion passed. Margaret will type bid to add contact information for the contractor, take a picture of the typed bid, and send the picture to the contractor for approval.

·         The board has, still, not been able to find anyone to agree to become a Library Board member. The board decided that we will try over the summer to find people, and will ask people over the summer if they would like to serve on the Library Board.

·         New Business:

Margaret stated that the old card catalog file cabinet must be moved out of the library because the library no longer has a use for it, and the space is needed. It must be out of the library by the end of May. Joyce Freyer is going to find out if her husband would like to have it, and if not, Page will find out if her husband has a use for it. The board had discussed what to charge for it, but no amount was decided.

·         Joyce made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Terry seconded the motion. The motion passed, and the meeting was adjourned at 6:41PM.

The next meeting will be August 22nd, 2016 at 5:30PM
