LARCHMONT PUBLIC LIBRARY BOARD OF TRUSTEES

MINUTES OF SPECIAL LIBRARY BOARD MEETING

MARCH 27, 2009

The Larchmont Public Library Board of Trustees met on Friday, March 27, 2009. The meeting was convened at 9:30AM.Present were Board Chair Miriam Curnin, Trustees Joan Macfarlane, Pamela Tillinghast Dubitsky and Carolyn Parlato and Library Director Diane Courtney.

The Board reviewed carpet samples, narrowed the choices to three and asked the Director to arrange for larger samples of those. They also reviewed the stock shelving colors and selected two: Parchment or Arctic White. Final decision on shelving will be postponed until all other colors are selected.

The Board discussed the termination of WB Engineering and their subsequent claim. The Director was asked to prepare a draft letter setting forth conditions for any payment and an alternate payment amount. Upon motion of Joan Macfarlane and seconded by Pamela Tillinghast Dubitsky, this was approved unanimously.

Removal of the existing fire alarm in the Village Center is a necessary prelude to any further deconstruction, but the main buildings alarm system, which is tied in with it, must be preserved. The Library has received a proposal from New York Fire & Security LLC to perform this work for an amount not to exceed $760. After discussion, Carolyn Parlato made a motion, seconded by Pamela Tillinghast Dubitsky to accept this proposal.

Removal of the speaker system in the Village Center was discussed but no action was taken at this time.

The meeting adjourned at 11:15 AM.

 Respectfully submitted,

 Diane Courtney
 Library Director
