Old Business
Operating Budget- Library budget, Trust funds – on target for 2020 expenses from taxpayer funds – roughly 3% left
Pandemic – we will continue to remain open with the current service model but that may change depending on changing circumstances
The new Library Assistant’s training is on target as scheduled.

New Business
The Trustees of the Trust Funds recommended quarterly disbursements of the Library Trust Fund in lieu of an annual allocation. This allows the remaining funds in the trust to incur the higher interest rate of the investments.
Becky motioned to change the investment allocation frequency to a quarterly disbursement, Seconded by Mame
Vote: All in favor Trust fund annual disbursement is 9,431.12
