Director’s Report to the Board of Trustees for March

 1. AV Project

The AV Project is hitting on all cylinders.  The distressed carpet areas in the reference area have been addressed by putting matching replacement tiles in the place of the tiles that were not replaced when new carpeting was laid on the 1st floor a few years ago. 

Almost all of the furniture has been received by the Children’s Department.  Unfortunately some of it will have to be replaced because it was damaged in transit.  All of the children’s DVDs and CDs have been reprocessed for selection and circulation from Children’s Department shelving.

The new shelving for the DVDs and CDs in the adult services area is due for delivery and installation by the time of the Board meeting.  

The electrician has installed the Ethernet cable in the circulation area.  This means that the self-checkout machine will be able to connect to the circulation system.  Once the installation of the machine is complete the connection will permit the self-checkout of all items from the new terminal.

Unattended Bags and Drinks

Your staff should be more concerned when patrons leave large bags unattended. Also, no beverages should be allowed.

Unattended bags can be concerning. Our staff strives to remind everyone not to leave any of their belongings behind. This is a public space with all that entails.  Currently, only covered beverages are allowed such as bottles of water.

Past Book Lists

Need to have a list of books already taken out so we don't have to say I had this or I have seen this before.

Libraries don't keep backlists of your book in order to protect your privacy. Under the Patriot Act, any such saved list would have to be given to the police when requested. We apologize for the resulting inconvience.

Copy Machine Table

Please place a table next to the copier. Your older machine had a shelf to hold paper. Thank you.

The copier machine is currently in a temporary location. When our construction has finished, it will be moved to a more accessible area with more room to spread out.

Shelf Height

Placement of audio cassette shelve too high and too low for senior sto see- very difficult to locate cassettes.

New Book shelves- too high for seniors to see or reach. Step stools too dangerous to use safely.

The main issue with our shelving is space. While we try to provide our materials in the most convient way possible, its difficult to contain a comprehensive collection in our existing space without using vertical real estate. With that in mind, we do our best to keep the collections fresh and free of titles that cause clutter. Whenever possible we don't utilize the top and bottom shelves.
