REGULAR MEETING

August 4th, 2020, 1:00 p.m.

Zoom Meeting

CALL TO ORDER:  The meeting was called to order by President Michael Cassidy

PRESENT:  Trustees:  Michael Cassidy, Julie Duff, Nancy Meyers, Dickson Pratt, and Jeff Pryor

Library Director Kristen Moberg.  President of Friends Beth Williams

ADDITIONS OR DELETIONS TO AGENDA:  None

MINUTES:  Dickson moved and Julie seconded that the July minutes be approved as presented.  Motion passed.

NEXT MEETING:  Please note change in date to Sept. 8th, at 1:00 p.m.

PUBLIC COMMENTS:  None

FRIENDS:  Beth will order signs to match the room signs to designate donors with naming rights.  The signs will be a little smaller than the room name signs.  The wording will be worked out with the donors with the Board having final approval.  Room signs are still needed for the East Patio, the North Vestibule, and the Discovery Garden.  

Donors who have naming rights will be offered a tour of the library.  Each group will be separate and masks will be required.  The newspaper will be offered a tour.  Pictures will be taken with the furniture in place for the website.

FORECASTING IMPACTS:  Jeff asked that we all stay aware of any changes in the current situation.

BUILDING EXPANSION:

        Budget:  $18,000 was received from the Telluride Foundation.  The budget for the remodel and expansion is looking very good.  We are close to covering the final costs.

We had one complaint about the landscaping, but Dickson wrote an explanatory letter on why we chose what we put in.  

        Building Expansion/Remodel:  FCI is still working on a few items on the punch list.

They left the parking lot in excellent repair so we should get our deposit back from the city.

REOPENING THE LIBRARY:  Kristen has developed a plan to reopen the library building.  All the furniture will be removed and stored in the meeting rooms.  The toys in the children’s area will be boxed up.  The library building will be open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday with 4 appointments daily.  Curbside service will remain available Monday through Friday.  Specific details will be posted on the website and in the newspaper.  

DIRECTOR’S REPORT:  We have received a $5,000 early literacy grant.  Most costs are under-budget due to the closure.  The staff is looking forward to having patrons back in the building.

ADJOURNMENT:  Michael moved and Nancy seconded that the meeting be adjourned at 1:50 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Nancy Meyers, Secretary

ADDITIONS OR DELETIONS TO AGENDA:  None

NEXT MEETING:  August 4th @1:00 p.m.

PUBLIC COMMENTS:  None

FRIENDS:  How to handle signage for naming rights for the various spaces was discussed.  It was suggested that the signs match the new signs on the meeting rooms.  Beth will get the preferred wordage from the donors and show them a mock-up of the proposed signs.

We should receive the $18,000 from the Telluride Foundation in July.  

The last of the new furniture should be arriving soon, with the last four chairs arriving in August.

231 appreciation notes with hearts were sent out to donors.

FORECASTING IMPACTS:  None

BUILDING EXPANSION UPDATE:

Budget:  Dickson informed the board that we should have enough to finish the project.  We should be able to move the money back to our operating budget next month that was lent to pay for furniture.  Dickson will send out the detailed budget to the board members.

Building Expansion/Remodel:  FCI is still working through the punch list.  It should be completed next week. We should receive our Certificate of Occupancy today.  The trailer will be out of the parking lot by Monday.  We should receive $18,000 back from the City of Ridgway if the parking lot is left in good condition.  Monte believed FCI would take care of that.  The landscaping is done and there will be a walk-through tomorrow morning.  The Discovery Garden will be on the north side.  Design to be decided later.

RE-OPENING OF THE LIBRARY:  After discussion, it was decided to expand curbside service to five days a week.  Kristen will also let people know they are welcome to use the patios while social distancing to access our internet.  How and when the building will open will be discussed at our August meeting.

DIRECTOR’S REPORT:  150 plus items have been sent out with curbside service.  40 Summer Reading Kits were handed out.  

Kristen and the staff are finishing setting up the library and the staff room.  

The audit had been on hold due to the coronavirus, but will now move forward.  All the necessary information will be delivered to the accountant in the next couple of weeks.

A memorial plaque will be placed outside in honor of former librarian Ann Grimm.  A picture will be taken with current and former librarians to send to her family.

Kristen suggested we look into adding sail cloth shades to the eastern patio to help alleviate the glare for people using their computers.  

ADJOURNMENT:  The meeting was adjourned at 1;50 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Nancy Meyers, Secretary
