Public Comments/Guests Mayor Doug PierCe ar- rived at 6:55 p.m. Review/Change of Agenda Review of Last Meeting Minute Director's Report The month of Novem- ber was full of change at Norwalk Easter Public Li- brary. First of all, we added three new part-time li- brary staff members to work at our circulation desk. These three positions were replacements for in- dividuals that had left a few months ago. We are thrilled with the addition they have added to our team. The second change was the start of our storage re-organization project. We have been moving stor- age cabinets around within the library that have been desperately needed, but not affordable within the budget. These cabinets will provide a so- lution for now, but we are hoping in future years to expand the building to truly solve our storage problems. In addition to the stor- age changes, the Library Board of Trustees and Di- rector Sealine are moving forward to add an addi- tional third full-time staff member in the near future. We have reached a point in which we are no longer able to function with Only two full-time team mem- bers and are looking for- ward to the changes we will be able to add with the addition. Present),, the Li- brary Board and Director Sealine are hoping to add the third person early next year (2014). Overall, the library had over 5,000 visitors during the month of November, circulated over 5,500 items between our print collec- tion and digital collection which includes 13 check- outs for our new digital magazine collection (Zinio). We added 41 new accounts to the library, sponsored seven pro- grams for adults with 34 participants, four adult outreach services with 39 participants and 20 pro- grams for children with 545 participants. In the next month, Di- rector Sealine will be working on the FY15 and FY16 budget proposal, along with continuing to update various collections and job descriptions.
