Merrimac Public Library Board of Trustees

Trustees’ Meeting, January 11, 2017

Attending:

The minutes of the December 14, 2016 trustees’ meeting were corrected to read that Tina will be retiring at some point within the next calendar year. The vote was unanimous to accept the minutes following the correction.

The Director’s position will be posted by April 1, 2017 in the central register. Tina suggested that the position be posted at MVLC as well. Action Item: Tina will look up job descriptions for library directorships to share with the subcommittee, Jeff and Yvonne.

Director’s Report- The quilt display will be taken down soon, but will return with new ones to display this spring. Tina will attend the finance committee meeting to present the library budget on February 2 at 8:00 p.m. Any trustees are welcome to attend with Tina. Tina has spoken with the DPW Director Bob Sinibaldi about including the cost of a new roof in capital planning. Bob will send over a representative from Advanced Roofing to determine the cost of a new roof.

Jeff will send over the Wadleigh Scholarship information over to Pentucket by February 3. He suggested sending out an essay question prior to the examination.

On the Director’s evaluation Susan recommended that we answer the question regarding maintaining certification as yes or no rather than numerically.

The meeting was adjourned at 6:02. The next trustees’ meeting is scheduled for February 8, 2017 at 5:30 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
Yvonne Cosgrove
