Lisa’s insights into our bylaws and purpose, from her recent experience on a library committee looking at these things: the true purpose of the LAB is to be representative of our branch/service area to inform the Commission. Suggested that we attend at least one Commission  meeting .  Also, noted that there is no mention of length of term in the bylaws of the LAB, except for the student member.

Beth Wilson has not been attending the Farmers’ Market on Tuesdays due to difficulty getting back to town to set-up and man the table.  Ken had a great suggestion to ask for City Hall closet space to store the table and crate; if not City Hall then the library to store the stuff.  Lisa suggested that an email be sent out to ask other members to man the table in the few remaining dates before the Market is over for the year.
