B. Econo Slips
Mary Marchaterre agreed to collect Econo Foods receipts again this year. Don Durfee mentioned that Pat’s Foods has a new program for schools that individual’s can sign up for and that donations to the schools will be automatic based on the use of your Pat’s Food card when you buy groceries there. Mary Marchaterre agreed to contact Pat’s Foods to find out if MTU can be selected as a school.

Popular collection books will now be added to the book cart when they are withdrawn from the library.

E. Annual Meeting
We decided that the
annual FVPL meeting will be held at on
Faith is putting
together the fall newsletter. Everyone
submitting newsletter items should
send them to Faith.
G. Orange Book Drop
The orange book drop had been set outside the library, and it was supposed to be moved to another location. No one has seen it since then, and it is believed that it was accidentally discarded.
We discussed the 2005 annual FVPL book sale. We decided to have fewer categories this year. We will need to do some prep work including: collecting small boxes (photocopy boxes and others that size or smaller), creating labels for the boxes, and labeling the boxes. We will then schedule some work bees to sort, price, and box the books.
I. Construction Update
Phyllis gave us an update on the library addition construction.
J. Library Requests
Phyllis agreed to ask the library staff if they have any funding requests for the FVPL.
