No new announcements.

  1. Discussion
  • Treasurer Report:
    Overall budget in order. Patron placed requests on LUV are up since the number of requests was upped from 1 to 3. We will drop the number of requests to 2 to keep the available budget money intact.

  • LUV Report:
    The Board discussed LUV growth and OA (Overdrive Advantage) goals through 2018. Opening up OA with no additional charge from GMLC will enable libraries to offer more popular items to their patrons and eventually donate items back to the GMLC collection. This will reduce hold times on popular items and enable the consortium to spend money on a broader range of items rather than purchase multiple copies of popular titles.

          Change LUV letter to include GMLC exit fee of $300 with less than a 3-month notice, no charge otherwise.

  • Officer Elections:
    Wendy Hysko, President, term expires 2019
    Owen McDermott, Treasurer, term expires 2019
    Kim Peine, Secretary, term expires 2019
    Nominated by Richard Pritsky, Seconded by Lisa von Kann, accepted by Board.

  • Delivery Service Update:
    GMLC will keep the contract with GMM for the next six months to give VTLib the time needed to follow state due process. Warehouse storage and sorting is costing around $400 a month; libraries might need to incur a charge of $5 a month to cover this fee. A meeting will be held in May to discuss.

  • VLC/Annual Meeting:
    Lisa will send out minutes from last year’s meeting for the Board to update.
