Acting Directors Report

The library has started a Blu–ray DVD collection with money from the Bender Foundation/Friends of the Larchmont Public Library. We are still waiting for the replacement desktop piece for the new adult circulation desk. The Children's Room continues to have very well attended programs with seventy–five preschoolers celebrating New Years Eve with a dance party on the morning of December 30 with Paula Greeman. One hundred and fifty adults and children enjoyed the National Circus Project, a one man performer. And fifty children created holiday crafts during a two hour drop–in.

The Board convened into Executive Session at 8:00PM to discuss the selection of the new library director and reconvened at 8:30PM.

The meeting adjourned at 8:30pm. The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Board will be February 8, 2012.

Respectfully Submitted,


June Hesler
