    Maintenance Update
    Toilet has been repaired (sanitizer wipes were the issue); gutter on east patio needs repair (seam at joint has hole/contractor has been engaged but need dry weather, etc.); outside maintenance room has shelving (thanks to Richard); due to increase in trash pick-up costs I switched from 2 yard dumpster to 2 trash cans on hold list for 1 yard dumpster; pergola update (scheduled delivery for Wednesday April 19th and installation on Thursday April 20th, Richard will lead and we will work on getting volunteers. Talked with Dickson about native plant garden and will put a plan in place for spring maintenance.

    Seed Library & upcoming class
    Saturday March 11th we have seed class scheduled with Chris Lance (23 signed up to attend + library staff member, teacher w/ 2 helpers). We posted to our website, bulletin board and Facebook with good results.

    Restocked Seed Library this week and now packets are available to patrons. Merry updated sign out sheet to simplify and limited 8 packets per month to each patron. Highlighting some of our donors, who generously gave with minimal cost. Mostly just shipping fee.

    Material ordering
    Updated our Ingram ordering procedures as a Colorado Library (now 45% off books and shipping costs are more cost effective and set between FREE and $9); PLAYAWAY signed up for Standing Order Program (SOP) to update and get 5 new playaways each month at a discount (this contract is for one year). Also took advantage of Play It Forward to send old materials back and get new playaways at a discount (used weeding procedure to make decision on which materials to remove)

    Community Outreach
    Went to CTC (Communities That Care) meeting on March 2nd. Voyager is leading the meetings, but many leaders in the Ouray and Ridgway communities are involved. Goal is to provide safe places and activities for teens to do when they are not in school.

    Summer Reading Update
    All the programs are scheduled. (June 8th-July 20th). We are skipping the week of July 4th as we thought this would be best since Voyager is closed that week. We are working with Voyager so the children/families participating on Thursdays will be able to attend. Youngest Voyager group (ages 3-6) will be attending craft time on Wednesday afternoons and possibly coming to story time on Monday mornings. I will give more updates at future meetings.

    Audit Report
    Brought information to accountant last month for exemption work to be completed. Everything went smoothly. I sent in via USPS with tracking information to the state.

    PLAR (Public Library Annual Report) Report
    This report is mandated by law, the State Library collects data about Colorado public libraries and provides library professionals with important information for planning, evaluating, and budgeting. In addition, the data are reported to the Institute of Museum and Library Services and are used in national reports and the Library Search And Compare tool.  This project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. This report is to be completed and submitted by April 13th. I have support from the CliC, if I have clarifications on any questions.

    CliC Workshop
    I attended via zoom February 23rd & 24th. It was valuable and helpful. I will share recordings when I have them available. I will be viewing more recordings as well.

    Insurance Coverage/Budget
    We set the budget at $6000 for insurance, but increase was more than we expected at $6325. It includes coverage for SB21-008 as many libraries are doing now. I sent in our renewal March 9th.

    Library Statistics
    Great turn out for programs. Really happy with the community support and circulation of materials. Meeting room use has been great for individuals and groups.

    President Sally Trapp moved to adjourn the meeting at 3:09 P.M.  Jenny Williams seconded the motion and motion passed.
