Knoxville Public Library Board of TrusteesFebruary 4, 2014
The meeting was called to order by President Terry Mauer with trustees Mastin, Peck, Slaton, Flesner, and Wilt present, in addition to Librarian Rose.
The minutes of the January meeting were approved as read. Correspondence included thank you notes from the KPL employees for their Christmas bonuses.
In Treasurer Jill Hickman's absence, reports of the KPL financial picture were reviewed. Doug Slaton made a motion to accept the report, which was seconded by Dave Wilt and received unanimous Board approval. Bills were presented for payment, after which Doug Slaton made a motion to pay them. This was seconded by Ann Peck, and was followed by unanimous Board approval.
The Librarian's Report was read by Pat Rose and the Board then discussed the microfilm reader which is in need of repair. Dave Wilt offered to review the operating manual and then see if he could access the interior of the machine. There was also discussion about having a tech employee of the Galesburg School District evaluate the machine if he had any knowledge of microfilm readers. Since this item fell under Unfinished Business as well, Pat Rose will continue to pursue the repair of this machine if other possibilities are not available.
In New Business, the automation supplies and equipment are all delivered and Michelle Walker will begin automating the inventory tomorrow.
There were no Maintenance issues to discuss.
With no further business to come before the Board of Trustees, the meeting was adjourned at
Penny Flesner, Secretary
