E. Director’s Report: September and October reports were given by Director Van Ackeren. No board meeting in October due to lack of quorum. It was reported we went over budget by 1.9% possibly due to extra salary hours for re-accreditation and unplanned hours on the library outside property. Still waiting for approval for re-accreditation from Christa Porta (NLC). Application was sent September 26, 2019. We received the NLC Youth Grant for $600 and will spend that on the Children’s Summer Reading Program (2020). December 3 we will be hosting our 3rd Annual Welcome Winter Event. Grasiani volunteered to help (from 6pm-7pm) and Lee will donate unfrosted cupcakes for the event. Director Van Ackeren advised that she received a scholarship for the NLA Conference which was held in La Vista in October. A new volunteer agreement form was approved over email.
