There were from 8 to 15 adults in attendance at each program.
1. Shelving Re-arranging: The project has been on hold for the Summer Reading Program. The kids section will be moved first sometime in August. Sara will send an email to the board when they are in need of help.
1. Meeting Night and Time: A discussion was held about the change in the board meeting time. We have had fewer members in attendance since the time was changed. It was decided to go back to the original meeting time of the first Monday of the month. Because of Labor Day, our next meeting will be on August 31 and the following meeting will be October 5.
