Geneseo Public Library District
Board of Trustees Meeting
August 12, 2019

The Board of Trustees of the Geneseo Public Library District met in Foundation Room A at the library on Monday, June 10, 2019.  Board President Ray Rogers called the meeting to order at 6:31 p.m. Trustees in attendance were:  Janet Klavohn, Carol Luciani and Kim Reynolds. 

Citizen’s Input   No citizens were present.

Secretary’s Report   The minutes for the July meeting stand approved as printed.

Financial Report/Bills to Be Paid    Ray made a motion to pay the bills, Karen seconded the motion, and it passed unanimously by roll call vote. 

Library Director’s Report   Please refer to Claire’s written report.  The subject of donations only for notary was discussed and agreed upon.  The employees’ Christmas party will be held the first Sunday in December at the new bed and breakfast.  State Street Café will do the catering.



Webpage   After receiving input from several local libraries regarding time spent updating their webpages, the Board determined that Deb Wyffels should spend no more than10 hours a month on the webpage and Ellen Moore should spend five hours a month.

Final Budget    With having the Tentative Budget and Appropriation Ordinance available to the public for 30 days, Paul made a motion to approve it as the Final Budget and Appropriation Ordinance. Janet seconded his motion and it passed by roll call vote unanimously. The document was signed and will be filed with the County Clerk.



Inter-library Loan  Because there have been many books ordered through inter-library loan and patrons do The Board agreed to charge patrons $1 per book that they request through inter-library loan and do not pick up.  This occurs quite often, with patrons requesting several books and never coming in for them.

Grants   Through the library system, we are participating in a plan in which we received approximately 20 computers being replaced by newer ones from Kirkland Community College.  Those computers, which are newer and faster than our older ones, will replace our older computers.  Our old computers will then be on sale at the library for $20 each.  

Adjournment   With no further matters before the board, the meeting ended at 7:29 p.m.
