The library will be closed December 23-25, December 31, and January 1.
The library’s current public Internet use policy calls for a time limit of 30 minutes, with additional time granted if no one is waiting. Staff have noticed many patrons needing to request more time when their first 30 minutes expires. M. Mulder and B. Bleck discussed increasing the initial allotment of time to 60 minutes for a trial period of three months. If that trial period is successful, the board can consider updating the Public Internet policy.
The board asked to vote on this at the December board meeting, following our discussions of this idea at two previous meetings.
H. Schick moved to update the start time of regular board meetings to 6:00pm starting with the January 2019 meeting. O. Foat seconded.
