- Call to Order Stephanie Bellucci called the virtual meeting to order at 12:06 pm. She thanked the board for participating on short notice.
- Lend & Send and Delivery A significant number (60%) of libraries have announced their closings since yesterday’s board meeting. It was MOVED BY: Laura Leonard Seconded by: Matt Latham To turn off lend and send for all libraries and suspend delivery after delivering what is currently in the vans. All in favor. Motion carried.
Items will be due a few days after the owning libraries re-open; due dates for items belonging to libraries that remain open will be extended by 2 weeks. Patrons of libraries that remain open can still place holds. Patrons of libraries that are closed can place holds, but the holds will be processed when libraries re-open. Dave Hanson advised that libraries should have enough space to store materials in their buildings until they can be returned to their home libraries. Patrons will be notified of library closings via social media, signage at the library, the website and via email if it is on file in Polaris. Libraries can opt out of the last delivery on Monday if their buildings are being cleaned over the weekend.
3. Adjournment It was MOVED by: Ellen O’Keefe Seconded by: Sai Rao to adjourn at 12:27 pm. All in favor. Motion carried.
