The 2019/2020 budget plans are for new lentils and windows for the upstairs unless the roof needs to be replaced which would take priority.

Projects – Sandy B volunteered to send an email to the membership to let them know about the Dog Houses that are for sale.
Display of US Flag – Sandy B checked the grounds around the library and found that there was no suitable area to place a flag pole.
Chairs in Piano Room – Sandy B provided pictures of four styles of chairs that might be suitable for the piano room. We decided to research some more styles and discuss them at the next meeting. Sandy B and Rosemary K will check the chairs currently being used to see how many chairs need to be replaced.
Carpet Pad – Ellen S has ordered the nonslip rug pad for the carpet in the Non-Fiction Room and she is delighted with how well it works. She thanked the Friends for approving the purchase and told us “it is the BOMB”.

LIBRARY REPORT

COMMITTEE REPORTS

Membership Committee Report – Rosemary K. and Sheila L. reviewed the corrections and removals to the email list.   With the changes made, the list is now up to date.

Projects – Sandy B met with Steve Sewell of Brandywine Bay Golf Club re placement of the Little Free Library into the Brandywine Bay complex.  Mr. Sewell apprised one of the Brandywine personnel will install the Little Free Library and we will pay $25 for this.

NEW BUSINESS

Sale of Dog Houses – Suggestions were solicited as to where the “Dog Houses for Sale” sign can be placed.   Ken C will go to the Chamber of Commerce; Diana V will go to Brandywine Bay Golf Club; Betty K will go to one of the Veterinarians.  We will also look into the Library placing an ad in the Carteret News-Times through library staff; Sheila L will email the Friends of the Webb.

2019 Budget – Rosemary K brought up the 2019 budget.  It was decided the budget would be the same as passed in 2018:

Programs/Events                                           $500

Children’s Events                                           $800

Supplies                                                        $500

Projects/Capital Expenses                               $1000

Grounds Beautification                                   $500

Honorariums                                                 $500

Memberships/Organization Dues                      $325

Rosemary K made a motion to pass the 2019 budget as listed above; it was seconded by Arthur V.   The vote was unanimous.

Display of US Flag – There was discussion on placing a US flag on a pole outside the Webb Library since it is a government building.  Consideration has to be given to getting a pole and mounting it, and then either getting a light to shine 24 hours/day or raising and bringing the flag down daily.  Sandy will talk with a city representative to see how much help Morehead City would provide if we pursued hanging the flag.

Chairs in Piano Room – Sandy discussed the need for getting chairs for the Piano Room.  We are looking for inexpensive, rugged chairs for the wear and tear it will get, with ability to be easily repaired as the need arises.  Sandy is leaning to restaurant-type chairs because of their durability.

Carpet Pad – Sandy will check with Ellen S for an update on the nonslip rug pad for the carpet in the Non-Fiction Room.

NEXT MEETING:

The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 10:30 AM at the Webb Library.

ADJOURNMENT

The meeting adjourned at 11:30 AM.
