Board Meeting


February 4, 2019


The board meeting was called to order by Kate Tyczinski at 6:05p.m.  Others present were Sara Wilson, Lenny Glover, Julie Barden, Kes Thompson, Betty Kastenschmidt, and Joy Waterbury.  Erin Witthun and Kathy Jerome were absent.  Motion by Kes and seconded by Julie to approve the minutes for January 7, 2019.  The motion passed.  The Treasurer’s Report for February was presented.  Sara advised that the withholding for the 4th quarter is wrong and that the withholding will now be taken out monthly instead of quarterly.  Motion by Joy and seconded by Kes to postpone approving the Treasurer’s Report.  The motion passed with all in favor.



 Spring Fling:  Sara advised that we have 6 tables rented already but we are looking to have 10 tables.  Everyone was asked to contact one person to try to get 4 more tables rented.  It was decided that we would have the potato bar with cinnamon rolls and coffee.
Rummage for Reading Table: Sara did not have time to come up with a total for this month.  She said the table is going well and people are happy that it is up again.


 Security System:  Sara reported that she received a bid of $2060 from Quick Technologies from Pine River (the company the Markesan Library uses).  She has called a company in Madison but has not heard from them yet.  After a discussion, Betty made a motion to purchase the system from Quick Technologies.  Kes seconded the motion and the motion was approved by everyone.
New Pump:  Sara advised that the new pump charges were $75 for Al’s Plumbing and $1823.64 for Central Well and Pump Service.  Sara has advised Neil Siewert of the new pump installation and will send him the charges for half of the total bill.


 Display Table:  Sara advised that the theme this month is “What do you love about your Library?”  There are sheets for people to write their thoughts on and romance books are displayed on the table.


                Sara brought up the fact that having the meeting on the first Monday of the month can be difficult for getting the treasurer’s report done on time.  After a discussion, Julie made a motion that we change the Library Board meeting night to the second Tuesday of the month.  Betty seconded the motion and the motion passed.

                Sara had the end of the year report completed and asked Kate to sign the report as the Vice President.

Motion by Joy and seconded by Julie to adjourn the meeting at 6:40p.m. 

Lenora Glover
