  1. We came across another person with 64 hours of unapproved time from August. Will send a letter and generate a check.
  2. Drafting a memo on cell phone policy - will be sending it to the Directors for approval.
  3. Log-in requirement for phones discussed.
  1. VOIP in East - we've done all we can with Telecommunications. We're waiting for them to give us a time. Six libraries have been converted and East is the last. Now they say they are unable to lease the phones - they'd have to buy new ones. Bill wants to go with the "soft phones" - just a handset that runs on the computer - no physical phone required.

  3. Any info on room 450 East archive? It has been passed on to the Directors. It should fly.

  6. Acrylic mirrors and frame - $1000 purchase. Rob got them off the internet with his VISA. If they are deemed vital, we will get more for other facilities.
