  3. Town of Richmond – FEMA zoning: we have been clear that we cannot do what DEC is asking re changes to our building, since we have already made changes that Tim Rock recommended and we believe that this should be sufficient to deter any flooding. We have not heard anything knew from the town.

Programs/Meetings

Janelle listed an impressive number of meetings held here from January 6th through February 11th, on the agenda.  There was a total of 200 Attendees.  We also have some private tutoring every Tuesday and Thursday, and every evening from 5-8 pm. Janelle reposts info about the week’s activities so people know those schedules.

New Business

  1. Doors to the closet were replaced on January 21st and they will set up a time to finish and repaint. There is apparently no reason why the painting should have caused to problem with the rivets and if they is one it will be fixed at no charge.
  2. The Trustees’ positions – President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary – were discussed, and as we don’t do a formal process, trustees just decided that as the officers agreed to retain their positions, and no one else wanted them, those would just re-up. The Board also decided to ask the Secretary to provide more information in the Minutes about discussions, decisions and an Action List to remind trustees what they had agreed to do, if anything, for the next meeting.
  3. Ron Kirsop has agreed to come and meet with us to do a training workshop, which we all thought would be very helpful. He cannot come at our regular meeting hours but can come a little earlier on our usual meeting nightThe State now mandates a certain number of education hours for trustees. Decision made with him that: He will come on Wednesday March 11th.  We will gather for our meeting at 5:45 and he will arrive at 6:30 for about an hour or so.
  4. State Annual Report Due on February 14, 2020. Connie (bookkeeper) and Janelle attended at January 24th workshop at PLS about this and the report has been finished.  Mary moved and Tim seconded the motion to accept the Report – passed unanimously by the Board at this meeting.  Note:  The report has been submitted.
  5. Bylaws: Ron is asking that our current bylaws be updated and “beefed up”. We agree that this does need to be done; we need to look for the most current revisions before doing this.
  6. Communication services: We have switched to Spectrum for our services.

Action Items:

We will look to find current bylaw revisions (all)

The roof leak repair was $405 and there has been no more leaking. Tree trimming was also discussed as a contributing factor to roof issues; a patron, Mr. Spraugh, has volunteered to trim back the cherry tree.

New Business:

January open house is tomorrow, 1/9, 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Mary will pick up food: a cheese tray from Wegmans. Janet will be setting up the drinks. Many people have said they will be attending. We are unsure of the actual number of people to expect.

Tim moves to allow Mary to pay for the open house food as HPL Board Member. Motion was passed unanimously.

Our previous insurance provider, Erie, is no longer available through Chrisman Insurance. We are awaiting the new cost of insurance through Utica.

Possible volunteer opportunities were discussed and will be presented at the open house tomorrow. Advise Janelle of any additions/ideas to add.

Some ideas for performances were shared by Janelle, including: Merry-Go-Round Theater, a dance class followed by swing band performance with a dance floor and karaoke accompanied by a house band.

Janelle attended the Town of Richmond Comprehensive Planning Committee meeting where she discussed how HPL would like to serve the community. The meeting went very well and areas of discussion included expanding program offerings, expanding hours, a possible, survey to determine what the community wants from the library. The FEMA topic also came up at this meeting. The Town Supervisor, Daryl Marshall, mentioned the possibility of HPL being written out of FEMA. We are currently holding on the issue – not moving forward.

Minimum wage has increased from $11.10 – $11.80. This only affects Katie. Katie is doing great and things are going smoothly even without Sue. A ladder to access top shelves as well as a wheelchair to keep at the library were possibilities discussed. Janelle would like a construction grant to make the front doors more handicapped accessible.

The reorganization of the library looks great. Janelle is working with the school art teacher and principal to display student’s artwork around the library as well as generating other ideas to bring more people in.

Action Items:

Amy will email minutes to all.

Mary will find a volunteer for the February book sale.
