Library Director’s Report:
Treasurer’s Report: Dick has created two new CD’s for the two large gifts we received. The budget is on target for the year. There was a discussion on how to account for gifts from the FOL.
Gifts: The Board unanimously accepted gifts totaling $50.00. See attached.
Technology: Dave is thinking about putting up a technology table at the NHLTA meeting in May. The Trustees felt this was a very good idea.
There was no old business.
New Business: Amy would like to revamp the policy manual. Some of the policies are very old and many need to be updated. Some have been replaced by new town policies. Some reflect procedures to be followed and not policy. The Trustees unanimously told Amy to go ahead with this revamping.
There being no further business the meeting was adjourned at 7:10 PM
The next meeting is Monday, April 21 at 6:00 PM.
Helen D. Rowe, Secretary
