Library Di- rector Holly Sealine was present. Public Comments/Guests There were no public comments or guests. Review/Change of Agenda Review of Last Meeting Minutes Director's Report In February 2014, the Library saw 4,338 visitors and circulated a total of 6,198 items. We also saw 34 new patrons get library cards during that time. We sponsored 11 adult programs with 87 participants. Mary Kay was also able to reach 12 more adult participants through a presentation. Deb was able to reach 19 individuals in the two times she was able to complete adult outreach services. We are very happy with where we are at in our programming and adult outreach services at this time. Youth services were able to reach 273 participants with 18 programs; however, we did not have any teen programs during the month of March. We will continue to brainstorm as to how we can reach this underserved population, especially as we continue with the restruc- turing of staff and staff responsibilities in the coming months. We are continuing to plan for our Summer Reading program, which will officially kick off Saturday, June 7, with a Family Fun Day from 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. Norwalk Lions club has graoously agreed to partner with us and serve hot dogs, chips and water for every- one. We Will also have large bounce houses set up in City Park and a few other fun and games for everyone "irt the family.-Wehope to see many individuals that day and get a large number of community members to sign up for Summer Read (available for anyone birth through adult). If anyone is interested in volunteering for that da3 please contact Annette Clark (515-981-0217). Throughout the month of March, Director Sealine worked to interview and narrow down an acceptable candidate for our Youth Services Librarian position. Overall, we had many qualified candidates and very happy with'the selected candidate. Director Sealine also worked to update more job descriptions to continue the staff reorganization plan. The latest job description cre- ated was for a library page (also known as: library shelver). Fin all the Library Board of Trustees and Director Sealine discussed the best practice of having board mem- bers participate in 3-5 houtrs of library related continu- ing educai (3 a ear[y Ibasis. It was determined that the current group of board members prefers in-person presentations by individuals such as our district library consultant. We will continue to pursue this more in the late summer or early fall, when more time is available to do so. As alwhys, please do not hesitate to contact Director Sealine with any questions or suggestions. Thanks!
