Minutes of October 4, 2010

The monthly meeting of the Haverhill Library Board was called to order by chairman John Landrigan at 7:30 on October 4, 2010. Present were trustees, John Landrigan, Vesta Smith, Jane Darby, Mike Marshall, Barbara May and librarian, Nanci Myers.

Minutes of the previous meeting were approved.

Mike Marshall has looked into the sign project and has turned all of his information over to Keesha Luce.

The refinished floors are almost ready. There is one small part near the bathroom to be finished.

The Librarians reported that Dennis Mason has donated 110 DVD's to the library this month and needs a card of thanks.

Tasco has assured us that the alarm system is in good working order.

Nanci is interested in purchasing a Keurig machine for the library and is checking at other
libraries to see how much they charge and where they get their supplies. She will report at a later date.

Nanci will call Russel Wilcox for an estimate on the brick work.

A special thank you needs to go to Hugh Underhill for leaf removal after leaf season is over.

Laptop users seem to be having trouble with WIFI. Nanci will keep an eye on it and let us know if it escalates.

John reported that we don't have to tap into our investments and hopefully won't have to until the new year.

It was decided that we will go forward with all fundraising activities.
John will talk to Kathy and Ted about the chicken supper and Jane will put in a request for a spot at next year's Fall Festival for the pig roast. The strawberry festival will be on the second Saturday in July and we will be taking part in this.

The Fall book discussion series is in full swing as of the week of Oct 11, 2010.

John will make up a preliminary budget for next year and present it to us at the next meeting.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:35.
The next meeting will be on Monday, November 1, 2010 at 7:30 PM.
