Others:            Kim Fong, Murray Library Director; Julia Pehrson, Murray Library Assistant Director; Brittney Casad, Murray Library Staff   

1.         Call to Order:

            President Lewis called the meeting to order at 5:37 p.m.

2.         Approval of Minutes:

            The minutes for the July 2020 meeting were approved, as written, on a motion made by Vice President Fitch and seconded by Kirsten Woodbury. Voting was unanimous in favor.

3.         Public Comment: 

            None

4.         Financial Reports:

            Director Fong discussed the report for the End of Fiscal Year 2020. She advised that the budget is not completely closed out yet as the Finance department is working on figuring out reimbursement for COVID-19 costs. President Lewis asked about the rollover amounts for the buildings budget and Director Fong answered that totals will have to wait until the official closure of the fiscal year. Brent Gardner inquired as to why the reserve building budget is lower than last year. Nick Skene answered that it is a flow budget rather than a balance sheet item. He added that he would be interested to see the balance sheet for that account. Assistant Director Pehrson emphasized that the budget is a percentage, not a total number, so it will be a different amount each year. Director Fong stated that she can get the buildings reserve budget balance sheet for next month’s meeting. A motion to receive and file the financial report was made by Brent Gardner and seconded by Nick Skene. Voting was unanimous in favor.

5.         Board Reports:

            Vice President Fitch commented that a lot of Murray residents are looking for additional curriculum and programs to supplement their children’s education. She asked if the library could help with subscription services or things of that nature for patrons to use. Director Fong responded that it is something to investigate. She added that the programming team will be doing a kids craft program starting next month. Kids will sign up for it, stop by the library to pick up a kit and then do the craft online together. Director Fong stated that she will continue to experiment and research possibilities. Ali Lyddall commented that the Salt Lake County Library system offers some educational services and that Murray Library should be aware of services offered elsewhere. Kirsten Woodbury commented that it could be helpful to have something offered during daytime hours because a lot of the online schoolwork is not posted for the kids until late afternoon.

6.         Director’s Report:

            Director Fong shared the plans for the next stage of reopening the library. Browse & Borrow, where patrons will be able to come inside the library to pick up their holds and browse the displays, will go live sometime in the coming week. Patrons will make a 15-minute reservation no more than 48 hours in advance and will then receive a confirmation email with the details. Browse and Borrow will be offered Monday, Wednesday and Friday while Computer Reservations will be offered on Tuesday and Thursday. Ali Lyddall asked if there will be any evening hours offered for either program. Director Fong answered that right now it will only be from 10 to 5, but extra hours will be added as it goes on. Brent Gardner asked if there will be more displays to browse than there are normally and the answer was yes. Ali Lyddall commented that it might be good to put a sign up with the wifi username so that patrons can look up the information on a book without touching the item.

7.         Old Business:

            None

8.         New Business:

            Director Fong reported that it is almost time to do her appraisal. She added that the Board can either do it through the Murray City system or they can do their own appraisal as they have done previously. Ali Lyddall inquired as to whether the Board would have access to last year’s appraisal and the answer was yes. Vice President Fitch commented that maybe the Board could compare the two different systems at the next meeting in order to choose a system that is the most relevant. President Lewis seconded adding it as an agenda item for next month’s meeting.

9.         Adjournment:

A motion to adjourn was made by Ali Lyddall and seconded by Vice President Fitch. Voting was unanimous in favor. The meeting was adjourned at 6:37 p.m.

3.         Public Comment: 

            President Black shared a comment from her mother stating that she and her friends really appreciate the Hold Pickup Service. It is a comfort to them to still be able to pick up books from the library.

4.         Financial Reports:

            83% of the year has lapsed and everything is on budget. President Black asked if there was any accountability when it came to using tuition reimbursement. Assistant Director Pehrson answered that there is accountability, but it is all handled through the HR department of Murray City. She stated that there are specific majors that have been approved for it, registration and report cards must be shown and a C average must be maintained. President Black also queried why the professional services budget has not been used very much this year. Director Fong stated that more marketing has been done in-house this year, so it does not cost as much. However, there have been a lot of signs ordered for COVID-19 purposes and those have not been taken out of the budget yet. Assistant Director Pehrson added that a good portion of that money also goes to summer reading and the programs for it, so that will be quite different this year. Sage Fitch asked what the admin cost budget was. Director Fong answered that it is what Murray City charges for doing business for Murray Library (IT, HR, etc). Sage Fitch also asked about the unemployment budget being at zero and if any payments have been made into unemployment. Director Fong answered that there have been some unemployment costs that have been paid for the part-time employees who are furloughed at this point. She added that it is not something that is budgeted for generally. President Black asked if anymore costs are expected from that and the answer was yes.

Dustin Lewis asked about COVID-19 costs and if Murray City will do any repayment to Murray Library for those costs under the CARES Act. Director Fong answered that yes, there will be some reimbursement. There is also a CARES Grant for libraries that does not have to be spent until June 2021 and 50% of it must be for a digital inclusion project. President Black asked if some budget adjustments need to be made and the answer was no. Nick Skene asked if the buildings budget has been used and Director Fong answered that some was spent to repave the parking lot, but those costs have not come out of the budget yet. Otherwise, it is the “just in case” money for the furnaces and that money will roll over into next year. A motion to receive and file the financial report was made by Vicki Matsumori and seconded by Vice President Pehrson. Voting was unanimous in favor.

5.         Old Business:

a. Free Speech Policy: G.L. Critchfield, Murray City Attorney, led a discussion on the proposed map for the areas available for public forum on library grounds. Sage Fitch made a motion to table the vote until changes are made to the map and policy. Vice President Pehrson seconded this and voting was unanimous in favor.

b. Gun Lock Distribution: Director Fong provided clarification on how the distribution of gun locks through the library would proceed. She stated that the library would only be a distribution point. There would be nothing to do with acquiring locks, advertising, tracking or liability. Assistant Director Pehrson asked if the locks would be purchased with Murray City funds and the answer was no. Director Fong added that they would be donated through different organizations. President Black asked if this would be a continual thing or just until the locks run out. Director Fong answered that it would be just until the locks run out. Vice President Pehrson commented that she thinks the benefits outweigh the risks. Dustin Lewis made a motion to approve the library being a distribution center for gun locks. This was seconded by Vicki Matsumori and voting was unanimous in favor.

6.         New Business:

            Director Fong provided a handout for a COVID-19 Circulation Policy. This will be a temporary policy until patrons are allowed back into the building. Currently, all items that are checked out to patrons are due back on June 15th. With this policy, Director Fong is proposing to stop extending the due date to the date that the doors of the library will be open again. In order to provide a robust Hold Pickup Service, items need to be returned to the library more regularly. Automatic renewal will still be an active service. Items have been quarantined for at least 72 hours and that will continue to be done for the foreseeable future. In the interest of letting patrons checkout more items at a time, the hold and total item checkout limits will be increased. Assistant Director Pehrson added that these limit increases are more to help with the ebb and flow of materials while items are being quarantined in the book drop.

Sage Fitch commented that she feels like 100 items will be too many and may overwhelm the staff if they are all returned at once. Assistant Director Pehrson commented that it could be changed to 70. President Black asked for how much longer the late fines will be waived. Director Fong responded that it will be until the patrons can enter the building to checkout their own materials. Sage Fitch asked if it will be published that items are being quarantined and surfaces disinfected. Director Fong answered that the plan is to send an email to all patrons making them aware of what is going on and how to access services. Assistant Director Pehrson added that there is a sign currently on the book drop stating this. Vice President Pehrson made a motion to approve the policy with changes and this was seconded by Brent Gardner. Voting was unanimous in favor.

7.         Board Reports:

            None

8.         Director’s Report:

            Director Fong shared a presentation on how the library is functioning through the COVID-19 pandemic and the changes being made in order to reopen the library. President Black asked if there was a date for when the library will open for computer use. Director Fong responded that there is not a date yet, but that functionality is very close. Signage and cleaning materials still need to be purchased. Director Fong added that she does not want to offer a service and then have to take it away because there is not enough disinfectant. President Black asked for an update on the summer reading program. Director Fong responded that it will be a completely digital summer reading (now called summer learning) program. Patrons will be able to do it on the app or on a computer. An email will be sent to all patrons and they will have access directly from the library website. Director Fong added that it will start on June 15th and staff will be trained on it in the next couple of weeks.

9.         Adjournment:

            A motion to adjourn was made by Dustin Lewis and seconded by Vicki Matsumori. Voting was unanimous in favor. The meeting was adjourned at 7:11 p.m.

3.         Public Comment: 

            Dustin Lewis shared a comment from a patron that is frustrated when some text is covered by the address label in the back of the books. Patron requested that more of an effort be made to place those labels away from the text as having words covered makes it difficult for their children to practice reading. Assistant Director Pehrson responded that she would contact our book vendor to address this since they are the ones who place the address label. President Black inquired if there have been any problems with Hoopla. Director Fong responded that the only problems have been with expired cards not allowing patrons to login.

4.         Financial Reports:

            75% of the year has lapsed and everything is on budget. Director Fong provided a handout showing the preliminary outline for next year’s budget.

5.         Public Meetings Training:

6.         New Business:

a. Free Speech Policy: G.L. Critchfield, the Murray City Attorney, shared a handout of an Access to Buildings and Grounds Policy. This policy would determine areas on library property for public forum. G.L. Critchfield suggested that the library board work with the GIS department to outline those areas and advised the board that this policy is not required, but is something to consider adopting. Sage Fitch stated that she wants the areas available for public forum to be dictated exactly on a map or be put in more explicit language. She also wondered if any other libraries had policies like this. G.L. Critchfield responded that other policies he looked at were quite similar and stated that he would be happy to come back with a proposed map outlining those areas. Dustin Lewis made a motion to table the vote until a map is added. Sage Fitch seconded this and voting was unanimous in favor.

b. Gun Lock Distribution:  Director Fong stated that the City Council has requested the library be a distribution location for gun locks provided by Project ChildSafe. Assistant Director Pehrson asked if there was any information given about how many gun locks would be provided, if there would be any kind of tracking system or anything like that. Director Fong replied that there has not been a lot of detail given to her at this time. Sage Fitch asked if this falls in line with the goals and objectives of the library. President Black stated that it sounds like a good program that supports the vison of the library, but she would like more information before deciding to participate. Vicki Matsumori made a motion to table the vote until more information is provided. This was seconded by Vice President Pehrson and voting was unanimous in favor.

c. Incremental Tax Increase: Director Fong led a discussion on a conversation she had with the mayor about doing an incremental tax increase instead of a large increase every ten years.

7.         Board Reports:

            None

8.         Director’s Report:

            Director Fong shared a presentation about how the library is continuing to serve the community during the COVID-19 pandemic and the plans for slowly opening back up to the public. Right now, patrons can pick up their holds using the Holds Pickup Service. They can also view virtual storytimes and use the online library for digital services and collections. The first steps on reopening will focus on computer and scanner access with computers being placed throughout the library to accommodate social distancing. Director Fong advised that no major steps will be taken until a reopening is approved by Mayor Camp and Governor Herbert. President Black commented that she likes that the focus is on getting computer use up and running because that is a vital service, especially now. Sage Fitch commented that she worries about finding the balance between serving the community and protecting the community. Director Fong replied that it is definitely a hard balance to find. President Black asked if there was any kind of timeline for opening the library and the answer was not at this time.

9.         Old Business:

            Director Fong updated and rewrote parts of the Unattended Children Policy as requested. Dustin Lewis suggested that we add legal guardian to the policy so it says parent/legal guardian throughout the document. Vicki Matsumori had some grammatical corrections to add. Dustin Lewis made a motion to adopt the policy with the changes. This was seconded by Vicki Matsumori and voting was unanimous in favor.

10.       Adjournment:

A motion to adjourn was made by Vice President Pehrson and seconded by Brent Gardner. Voting was unanimous in favor. The meeting was adjourned at 7:03 p.m.

7.         Old Business:

            None

8.         New Business:

            Director Fong provided an Unattended Children Policy handout for review. Dustin Lewis asked if anything needs to be added or clarified.

Sage Fitch and Dustin Lewis proposed that it be included. Director Fong stated that she would type up a draft of the policy to be reviewed and voted on at the next meeting.

Assistant Director Pehrson responded that they are all working right now. Director Fong added that a full unit and half of another were replaced last year. President Black also inquired as to why so much of the adult periodicals budget is being used if the Library no longer has magazines and the answer was that the newspaper subscriptions alone take up the budget. Sage Fitch asked if wireless printing has increased printing costs. Assistant Director Pehrson responded that there might be more printing now that wireless printing is an option, but there might also be some patrons who had to get on a computer before that now just print wirelessly because it is easier. President Black asked if anyone will be using tuition reimbursement this year and the answer was yes. A motion to receive and file the financial report was made by Vice President Pehrson and seconded by Sage Fitch. Voting was unanimous in favor.

5.         Board Reports:

            None

6.         Director’s Report:

Director Fong gave a presentation on the new automatic renewal capability. She reported that this function will renew items the morning that they are due. Two auto-renewals will be completed as long as there are not any holds on the item and the patron does not have any blocks on their account (such as for over $10 in fines). She also informed the board that there hasn’t been and won’t be any advertising for it until all the bugs are worked out of the system, which will probably be in January. President Black asked how this will be advertised and if an email can be sent to all patrons. Director Fong responded that it will be advertised with signage in the Library, across social media and in the Murray Journal. Right now there is not a way to send an email to everyone in the system, but that option will be available in an upcoming system update.

7.         Old Business:

            Vice President Pehrson asked about the outcome of Amnesty Month and if it will be a program in the future.

Director Fong reported that 62 teens showed up.

8.         New Business:

Director Fong provided a Room Use Policy handout with the proposed changes listed. With the system update, patrons who have an expired card or a card with a block on it cannot reserve a room. Through discussion it was decided to change the name of Room #3 to the Board Room. New signs for the rooms are on order. Dustin Lewis asked if all meetings held in the Board Room or the Auditorium must be open to the public. Director Fong answered that if it is a meeting, then yes since the Library is a public space. Sage Fitch asked if this applied to the study rooms and the answer was no as it only applies to meetings (not study sessions or single person use). Sage Fitch also inquired if patrons know that meetings must be open to the public when they reserve a room. Assistant Director Pehrson responded that they must agree to the Room Use Policy when reserving a room. A motion was made by Vice President Pehrson to accept the Room Use Policy with the changes. This was seconded by Brent Gardner and voting was unanimous in favor.

She further explained that the viewing of pornographic images is against library policy and any observed violations should be reported to staff immediately. Sage Fitch asked if the filter/firewall was something that the library pays for and the answer was yes.

7.         Director’s Report:

Director Fong shared a presentation on a study commissioned by the Utah State Library about return on investment (ROI). She provided a copy of the 2019 statistical report that she sent to the Utah State Library and discussed the strategies used at Murray Library to get the best return on investment for physical and digital items.
