The FRIENDS of MIRROR LAKE LIBRARY (FMLL) August 6, 2014 board meeting was called to order by President Wayne Finley at 6:05 PM. The secretary’s report for the June 14, 2014 meeting was read and accepted with no changes. There was no July board meeting.
Monika Finley gave the treasurer’s report. As of July 31, 2014 the treasury had $1722.22. Future forecasted expenses were $510 ( youth summer reading and expenses for next author event). Future revenue estimated to be $130 ( author event) for a balance of $1342.22. The treasurer’s report was approved. Wayne suggested that prior approval would not be needed by board members to spend $30, or less for refreshments etc. Unanimous approval for this suggestion was given.
The results from our June 7th book sale was discussed. It was decided that Diane will co-ordinate volunteers next year. Our profits were $700 or more.
New business started with discussion of our next author event. It was decided it would be on September 8th from 5:00-7:00 PM, with the speaker starting at 5:45 PM. Barbara has been in contact with our speaker, Maureen McDole. Barbara requested that Sandy procure a microphone for this and all future events, so we won’t have a repeat of hearing issues like we did at the Deggans event. A future speaker may be someone commemorating Gabriel Jose de la Concordia Garcia Marquez, possibly in January, 2015.
Our participation in First Night was discussed; children’s events will be provided as well as a coffee table book about the library for sale for adults were recommended by those present.
Diane requested a centennial theme for her web site be considered. Wayne assured the board that we would be planning our own events to celebrate the library’s centennial as well as the committee that Mika is working with.
The meeting was adjourned at 6:55 PM.
Acting secretary, FMLL
