Director’s Report to the Board of Trustees for October

The October 2013 New City Library Board Meeting marks the 6th month of my employment.

I am happy that the Board of Trustees has come together to approve unanimously all of the library-beneficial projects that have been placed before them.  They have recognized consistently that what is best for the library is worthy of their support. 

I will offer a few general statements and then review where the library stands on the initiatives that have been proposed and approved for implementation.
