REPORT         1. I have banned Steven Wyatt from the library. This item is
               on the agenda for board action. A copy of the letter is
               included in the board packet.
               2. We have ordered parts and pieces so that Dustin can
               build two new computers to replace the present PAC
               computers. They are dying and constantly locking causing
               much frustration for patrons and staff.
               3. Andy has installed the rest of the shelving purchased from
               Wood River. Karla has shifted Fiction, Western. Mysteries and
               Science Fiction. CD books are being re-cased and shifted
               as they are completed.
               4. The power was off Wednesday April 8 due to
               replacement of power pole by Ameren.
               5. The board reorganization meeting will be May 21, 2009.
               6. The Village of East Alton is establishing a TIF to encompass
               the area of Wilshire Village. This area has been deemed
               7. The summer youth worker program is back due to the
               federal stimulus program. Workers will be earning $8.50 per
               hour. The program starts May 1 and is scheduled to end
               September 30. My goal is to put Karla on the program as
               well as two other workers and have them help with summer
               reading club.
               8. We have received no word on when or if the per capita
               grant will be disbursed. The required information is at the
               State Comptroller’s Office.
               9. Youth Services: The movie for March was the new release
               “Space Buddies”. There were only 6 in attendance. I
               attended SWAYS in Granite City this month. A mentally
               challenged adult group came in for a read-to program. This
               will probably be monthly field trip for them. I will attend
               Family Read Night at Eastwood Elementary later this month.
               Pre-school story time will start April 22nd. Summer Reading
               Club runs from June 23rd to July 28th. I am still working out the
               dates and activities.
