Public Portion:

Director's Report:
Almost a hundred children and parents participated in our 13th annual Lego My Leggo Family Night. Architects were Ed Arcari, Anthony Iovino, and Constance Gil. Children's Librarian Rosalie Nickles did a fantastic job organizing this event. Mrs. Nickles has also completed work on her section of the State-wide Summer Reading Program. It was an honor to our library for her to be chosen to participate. She took a great deal of her own personal time to complete her section.

Assistant Director Mimi Hui has organized seminars in job searching techniques, in response to patron usage of books on resumes, etc. Interviewing Skills will be offered on November 14, and starting your own business will be offered in December. Ms. Hui has also begun a Young Adult book discussion club. Many of the children who attended the Talk It Up   program facilitated by Ms. Mellet wanted to continue meeting. Mimi also attended a wrap-up party for participants in the Summer Reading Program given by BCCLS at the Rotunda at Neiman-Marcus. She reported that our children were both well-behaved and gregarious, mingling with students from other libraries!

Carolyn Lee Kravatsky will begin her Family Leave next week. I have planned for Jaclyn Ashline to take her place while she is gone, and Dorothy Schlatterer and Janice Napiorski, assisted by Penney Giammatteo, will pick up the slack.

I attended a meeting at the new offices of Arcari and Iovino to look over shelving specifications and placement of furniture and shelving in the new library.

The Securities account has been set up in preparation for the fundraising, and also to pass through the $10,000 donation from Ms. Marjorie Arp. The Children's Room Desk will be named in her honor. Ms. Arp's gift is even more welcomed as it came from one who truly appreciated what we do here.

A meeting in the near future will be held with CFO Mike Kronyak regarding budgeting for the new library.

Committee Reports:
Carolyn Lee Kravatsky begins her family leave Monday, November 18.

Date for Committee Meeting needs to be determined.

Dir. M. Reutty met with R. Iovino and CFO Mike Kronyak to discuss shelving and the library interior.
