The regular meeting of the Board of Trustees was called to order at 4:00 pm with the following trustees present: Koehler, Kramer, Pugh, Santos, Rush and Zoss. Absent: Peterson. A motion was made to pay the bills and requisitions, and was passed.


A. Germantown Hills gravel path across the front: A request was made to construct a path of gravel across the front lawn for students from the school to traverse, in order to avoid walking on the street. Kramer made a motion seconded by Pugh to construct this path. The motion passed.

C. Children's librarian: No one has been selected yet.


D. Germantown Hills site: Headquarters and Germantown Hills staff met with Fred Schlipf to discuss formative plans for the new library. Fredericksen will meet with Schlipf again and proceed from there.


E. Employer's Association: This association provides various services to its members, one of the most popular being the regional wage and salary surveys. Annual member- ship is $436. Fredericksen will bring more information to our next meeting on how their association would provide a custom survey for our district.


F. Policy: Several pages of the IPDPL policy booklet were reviewed and corrected.


An incident at the Metamora Library of a patron viewing inappropriate internet material numerous times with warnings, prompted Fredericksen to expel this person from the library. If there is one more violation, the patron will be denied library access for one year.


The meeting was adjourned at 5:10 pm. The next regular meeting will be Tuesday, January 8, 2008 at 4:00 pm at the Metamora Branch.
