Minutes of The Lebanon Library Board of Trustees

April 26, 2006

 

Board President, Jane Myers, called the meeting to order.  Members attending the meeting were Linda Jones, David Koehler, Jon Nixon and Marsha Truitt.  Members unable to attend were Kandi Caldwell and Sharon Wood.  Others attending were David Truitt, Library Attorney, and Dan Sulkoske, Kramer, Inc.

 

Kay asked that the minutes from February 22, 2006 and October 19, 2005 be resigned.  They were taken without authorization from the public minutes book in the Library.  This will catch the book up to date, again.

 

Jane Myers received the Indiana Outstanding Trustee Award.

 

The Secretary’s report was shared.  David Koehler made the motion and Jon Nixon gave the second to approve the minutes as amended.

 

Under correspondence, we had an inquiry from the Back to the Fifties committee requesting use of the north parking lot for the festival September 15 and 16, 2006.  David Koehler made the motion and Linda Jones gave the second to honor this request provided there is no construction conflict at the time.

 

David Koehler stated in his Treasurer’s report that we are “right on track.”  Claims 4204-4338 were presented.  Marsha Truitt made the motion and Jon Nixon gave the second to pay the claims.

 

Dan Sulkoske gave a building update.  The third floor design is done.  We do not know the cost at this time.  Tentative closing dates to move into the remodeled sections of the Library will be two weeks at the end of July and beginning of August.  The tile flooring was looked at again and two options for designs around the fireplace or fireplaces were looked at.  Option two was the choice.  OMS will help work with us on what can or can not be done.  We are hoping to save tile around one to three fireplaces and one or two doorways.  Marsha Truitt made the motion and David Koehler gave the second to proceed with this portion of the reconstruction.

 

Kay announced that we will receive the $4,280 LSTA Diversity Grant.  The contract was signed for the Diversity Grant called TAPP (Turn A Page Program).

 

We will also receive the $3,300 LSTA Technology Grant for four tablet computers. The contract was signed for the Technology Grant.

 

A reciprocal borrowing agreement between Brownsburg and Lebanon was discussed.  Jane Myers made the motion and Linda Jones gave the second to approve this agreement.

 

The Library received a $750 donation from Wilma Davidson for the Giving Tree.  One leaf was also purchased by Perry Worth in appreciation for student use of the Library.

 

David Koehler made the motion and Linda Jones gave the second to adjourn the meeting.  The next Board meeting will be Wednesday, May 24, 2006 at 4:00 p.m.
