   Called to order
7pm with board members, Kate Walrath, Bob Fucci, Patsy Nicosia, Tonja Law, Gina Gilbert, Belinda Feris, and staff Helen Thomas and Joanne Fralick.


Minutes for July approved. (Gina/Belinda) and Treasurer’s Report accepted.


President’s report: Attached

Jeanne motioned (by email) and we agreed to close the library on all federal holidays.

Continued discussion on steps to get on the school ballot and which community organizations we should reach out to. We will arrange for Eric Trahan from MVLS to be at our September meeting.


Director’s report


The clothing shed has been delivered. Bob has concerns about the signage on the shed and we agreed to move the sandwich board sign for it so it’s not blocking our sign.



Bob is still researching costs for an electronic sign.  

We need to address the doors (Since our meeting, the town has issued a work order for their door. It sticks and people think it’s locked.) 

Belinda conducted sexual harassment training for all at meeting.                                                                 


--Reminder: Book Giveaway set for October 2. (Though another realization post-meeting. This is imminent and also the same day as Run 4 the Hills—downtown will be packed. Just saying.)
