President's Report - Paul Snyder
Discussion centered on library staff recognition to be implemented in January or February.

Paul had a discussion with Joe regarding having a spring book sale, possibly in April. It would be an abbreviated sale from Friday through Sunday. There would be less stock on the floor and it would be easier to maneuver through the tables. This would be in addition to the fall book sale.

The documents were streamlined. The millage was passed. An operating agreement between the Friends board and the library was passed.

Paul thanked the board for their continuing support. He added he was proud of all that was accomplished.

Laura made a motion to appoint Jennifer from FVP to the Acting President. The motion passed. All were in favor.
