Branch Managers Report:  Keri Cascio reported Library Curbside Service started at the Kisker Road Branch on June 1.  The branch is in the process of a project that includes painting and relocation of the adult AV collection to the middle of the branch.  Seating areas would be created where the AV collection was formerly located.  This area would provide access to more electrical outlets for library customers.  Construction on Hwy 94 seems to have impacted circulation at the branch.

Foundation:  Kristin Williams reported the deadline for purchasing commemorative bricks for the patio at the new Spencer Road Branch is September 30. She will coordinate purchase of a Legacy Brick by the Board of Trustees.  The Foundation is close to raising its $500,000 goal for the new library.  Kristin reminded all of the Board about the joint Foundation Board and Library Board on August 11 at the South County Branch.

Next meeting:  The next meeting of the Library Board of Trustees will be Monday, September 12 at 7:30 pm in the Library District Administrative Offices. The meeting will open with a public hearing to discuss the proposed 2011 tax rate.  The hearing will be advertised and posted in accordance with the law.

MOTION:  Mary Reese moved to adjourn the meeting.  Lisa Pelikan seconded.  Motion passed four affirmative, zero negative, zero abstentions, and five absent.

The meeting adjourned at 8:00 pm.
