The December 3, 2014 meeting was called to order by President Finley at 6:05 PM. A quorum was present. Linda Sagese read the secretary’s report; it was amended to include details of Ms. Churuti’s report concerning our 501(c) (3)application, approval and requirements and accepted.
The treasurer’s report will be presented at our next meeting.
Old business discussed was forming a nominating committee consisting of 3 members to nominate next years’ officers. It was decided that Diane would put on our website a request that people interested in serving on the board contact us.
First Night plans were finalized. It was decided that Monika, Barbara and Linda would arrive at the library around 4:30 PM to set up our program. Diane and Wayne would arrive after work. Doors would open at 6 PM. We agreed to change the library replica from a “punch out” to a “cutout” due the extreme price difference. The coffee table book should be ready for sale and to take orders.
Upcoming speakers are Prof. Les Standiford on January 21, 2015. James Schnur and Jeff Klinkenberg will, hopefully, be confirmed as the speakers to follow in the coming months.
The meeting was adjourned at 6:48 PM.

The Friends’ First Night activity was creating a cardboard model of the library. If you came by the library on New Year’s Eve, and took the sheet but did not make the model with us, here are some detailed instructions.
This is the sheet you start with.
Cut it into two pieces, the building…
…and the roof.
If you want to write a resolution or message inside the building, go ahead. Then fold up the building.
Glue the sides to the tabs. Leave one end open, fold the roof, and attach the roof to the top four tabs.
Close up the end and you’re done.
The black-and-white side represents the original building in 1915.
The colored side represents the modern day building.
The bottom of the model has a short history of the library.
The model was designed by Friends of Mirror Lake Library President Wayne Finley. First Night volunteers included Wayne, Linda Sagese, Linda Earle, Monika Finley, Barbara Riddle-Dvorak, and Diane Drutowski.
Many activities celebrating the Mirror Lake Library Centennial are listed on the St. Petersburg Libraries 100 Years of Service 1915 – 2015 Centennial Calendar.
