  2. The Directors report showed a circulation of 509 items and 66 patrons using computers. There was $54.75 additional income from fines, copies, and faxes.  $340 was contributed to the Memorial Fund in memory of Pat Mitchell.  The Per Capita Grant application has been submitted.
  3. Old Business
  4. There was discussion about the use of the Memorial Fund.  The Board consensus was that it should be used for furniture rather than book purchases.
  5. The Board discussed investing funds not immediately needed for the day to day operation of the library. Carr moved that $50,000 be invested in a 24 month CD to earn 2.75% interest and $20,000 be invested in a 6 month CD for 2% interest.  Those interest rates were better than the .2% being earned in the Money Market account.  The motion was seconded by Blade, and passed.
