DIRECTOR’S REPORT

1)      The following trustees have terms expiring in 2015: Beverly Werts, Margaret Funke, Van Long and Sally Hierman.
There will be no unexpired terms. The last meeting that the Long’s attended was January 2014.
This was a mess to figure out.   

2)      David has resigned to work at the Edwardsville Public Library. Jocie will have company.       

3)      Kevin has been coerced by step increases to be secretary to the board. David is training him.                                               They will both be at the board meeting.

4)                  Roof bids are being collected.        

5)     I’m getting quotes for a lease on a new copier.       

6)      I’ve hired two staff members to replace David and Jocie. Chelsea Camerer of Wood River and Ken Lardinois of East Alton. We may need another person.

7)      The annual report to the State Library is complete, signed, and submitted.       

8)      I am working on the Per Capita Grant application. Hopefully we will have it completed by the board meeting. 

9)      There will be no Youth Services report. Maury has been on vacation for the last two weeks.  

10)  I have kept Darlene very busy with personnel projections.

11)  Natalie is quickly learning Jocie’s duties. She is a quick learner and very organized.

12)  We can discuss Michelle Hay’s Internet posting during the discussion session.
