Motion Carried. <br /> <br />Director’s Report: <br />- Discuss Sex Offender Law: There are changes to the Sex Offender Law that take effect July 1, <br />2009. State law prohibits sex offenders guilty of crimes against minors of entering a public <br />library or being within 300 feet of the premises without permission. To get permission to visit <br />a public library sex offenders would have to write to the Library Director. <br />Hibbert and the Board discussed the situation in August of 2004 when the State Library of Iowa <br />wished to get rid of some Internet users and did so by giving them copies of the area public <br />libraries’ policies on registration for cards and Internet use, then sent them to the area libraries <br />without warning. Hibbert mentioned this would no longer be possible and the new law gives <br />local public libraries the power to deny service to sex offenders guilty of crimes against children. <br />- A public media campaign, partially funded by the Gates Foundation, will begin in July and is <br />aimed at shaping positive attitudes towards public libraries. It is a pilot project undertaken by <br />OCLC in central Iowa and parts of Georgia and will conclude here in December. <br />- The Library’s new Facebook and Twitter pages were both launched last week. These <br />innovative communication tools will be used to further promote the Library’s services and <br />programs. <br /> <br /> Motion by Faux, second by Palestini to adjourn. The meeting adjourned at 7:00 p.m. <br /> <br /> <br />Kathie Hungerford <br />Library Office Assistant <br /> <br /> <br />
