Executive Committee

Early in the pandemic the board recognized it might be necessary to make changes in library services.  So the library could quickly respond to changing conditions regarding closures, reduced staffing levels from illness, and other potential service interruptions they created an executive committee composed of the library board president Hilde van Gijssel, director Steve Hammel, and assistant director Melissa Lloyd.  The committee was empowered to make "on the ground" decisions regarding library operations until such a time that the governing board could next meet, either at the regular monthly meeting or if necessary an emergency meeting.

The board and staff feels strongly about the need to ensure transparency in the decision making process and to make sure we are not violating open meeting laws, we are publishing summary notes taken during executive committee meetings.
