Tunbridge Library Trustees Meeting

January 14, 2019, 7:00 pm

Eve Ermer, Theresa Fitzgerald, Anne Linehan, Sarah Tischer Scully, Jean Wolfe, Ben Wolfe

Secretary’s Report

Minutes from November 2018 were approved.

Treasurer’s Report

Trustees signed the warrant from December (2 items) and reviewed time sheets.

Thus far our fundraising letter has yielded $6,410.

We have overspent our fundraising budget (for postage, printing, supplies) by approximately $100. Some of this cost was defrayed with donations (thank you!). We will need to account for this in the 2019 - 2020 fiscal year even though it was not increased in that budget.

Discussion of expanding fundraising efforts for next year: expanding the list, gathering emails at library events.

Theresa will contact Donna of the Friends of the Library to request our allotted $10,000 for this year.

Librarian’s Report

Lots of events happening in the Library - first Winter Evening of the season, weekly story time, new Art Space exhibits, and regular use of the community room continues to be strong.

Hiring of Custodian

Judy Howe is the new Custodian for the Library, and is also taking waste to the transfer station.
