Since the Friends donate several <br /> thousand dollars to the library each year, there are some budgetary concerns that will need to be <br /> considered. Director Seaman has reached out to Friends officers to set up a meeting. There was <br /> discussion on staff doing the book sale, however this is not feasible due to the time involved. <br /> Director's Report <br /> Interim Director Morgan provided the following report: <br /> The library is hosting a Furry Friends supply drive for animals now through December 31. <br /> The library provides outreach services to day cares, schools and nursing homes. <br /> The issue with the circulation statistics has been resolved and the November report is correct. <br />
