Financial Report

Waneta presented the March financial report and expressed concerns over the warrants for the credit card not matching the amount owed on the credit card for that month. Mary will find out what dates the billing for the credit card covers. Mary motioned to approve the monthly bills, NaTani seconded the motion. Motion approved.

Librarian’s Report

Waneta is working on the Summer Reading program. We received a free book in Spanish and English from Rhonda Seacrest and a music CD from Jim Salestrom. Waneta attended a Summer Reading workshop in McCook and a STEM workshop in North Platte. There were 75 trick-or-treaters; and 27 attendees at Home Town Christmas open house.

The Library doors are currently locked due to COVID-19. We discussed keeping the doors locked and allowing people in.

New Business

Tyler said he had information on new computers at his office and will bring it to the next meeting.

Hopefully we can move towards getting more board members.

Tyler made a motion to adjourn; Mary seconded. Meeting adjourned.
