1. New Board & Reception
I want to welcome the three new additions to the Board, Ralph Sabatini, Jeffrey Sasson, and David Zuckerberg. I would like to plan a reception for the staff to meet the entire Board at its quarterly staff meeting for the first quarter of 2014. I recommend Friday morning, January 31, at 9:30am. The Library doesn’t open until 11:00am on Fridays, which is why that is the best time to meet the staff and interact informally with them
I also wish the very best to Jeffrey Greenberg, Matthew Mulrooney, and Thomas Ninan, the three retiring Board members.
I’m especially grateful to the full 2013 Board for hiring me and for their support. I will continue to do the best job I can in 2014 and look forward to working with the newly reconstituted Board of Trustees of the New City Library.
