The Vermillion Public Library board met February 14th, 2007. The meeting was called to order by Matthew in the absence of Karen. Cheri was absent due to the death of her mother-in-law and a card was signed for her and Dan. The Secretary read the minutes of the last meeting and they were approved.
Audrey read at Kinder Prep. It was held January 13th with 43 students. The next one will be Feb 23rd.
Audrey attended a Beginner Publisher workshop January 16th. It was very informative, they made bookmarks, a handbook is available to check out.
The statistic report was read. We checked out 1208 adult books this year and 470 children’s books.
Audrey attended Title Source 3 workshop on Feb 2nd.
We have ordered two new books The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini and Gordon Parks book Learning Tree Experience.
We have received a request for the name of the building in Vermillion, where touring theatrical productions were shown during the late 19th and early 20th centuries if someone has this information we would appreciate hearing from you. Was it the opera house?
We’ve also been in touch with Scott Edwards the walking man he hopes to have his book out in a few months.
Matthew held a computer class for two last week.
We discussed possible projects or displays at the library, we’ll discuss this at a later date.
There may be matching funding available to upgrade the Gates computers, we will watch for information on this.
The meeting was adjourned.
Marylyn Wenzl Secretary
