Meeting: Contractual LibraryApril 5, 2013
The Dubois County Contractual Public Library Board met Thursday and:
”¢ Approved a measure to officially request that the Town of Birdseye apply for a planning grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs for up to $15,000 to study whether to continue existing library operations, expand the branch library at 100 State Road 145 or build a new library.
The library board will pay a $3,500 local match to cover the Indiana 15 Regional Planning Commission’s work administering a grant.
”¢ Approved banning electronic smokeless cigarettes from library property to provide more consistency with the board’s zero tolerance smoking policy. Dean Vonderheide opposed. The Jasper Public Library passed the same resolution later in the afternoon.
”¢ Heard from board President Kathy Tretter that the Birdseye Branch Library is the recipient of four refurbished computers donated from Indianapolis-based student organization Net Literacy. The computers have been delivered and will be installed at the library within the next few days.
”¢ Approved a resolution of respect for board member Karin Gray, who died on March 23 after a long battle with cancer. The Jasper board also observed a moment of silence in memory of Gray. A new board member will be selected in the coming weeks.
