The Vermillion Public Library board members met April 11 for their monthly meeting. Karen Zidek conducted the meeting.
The Secretary read the minutes of the last meeting, they were corrected. It should have read Dave Zidek, the mayor, attended the meeting.
Audrey read a letter given to her, that the Mutual Improvement Club submitted to the City, dated March 3, 1953, to consider a tax levy for the library, we appreciated this and added it to our archives.
The Treasurer gave her report, it was approved.
The librarian gave her report she had purchased 101 books through the Scholastic program at the Vermillion school. These books will be processed and used as part of the check out program for Kinder-Prep. State aid money should be used as part of the payment for these books. April 20th will be the next story hour, the date for the Kinder-Prep to visit the library will be Friday May 18th. We will have a story and then have treats for them.
