Public Comment (3 minutes per person):  John Bohannon was present and submitted a list of possible projects for the library that had been deferred from 2015.  He advised that the Strategic Planning Committee has sent out a survey asking what the library needs and suggested this committee hold off setting goals until the results are in.  He then left the meeting.

Discussion of Goals:  Ray Massucco said he’d like to see us do a capital campaign; but advised it would be eight to twelve months out in the planning stage.  Carol Blackwood would like to focus on solar panels on the library roof to help defray the cost of electricity as the library is heated by electricity.

The committee was in agreement.  Celina Houlne advised that there is a survey out to the trustees and patrons as to what the library needs are.
