MEETING PREVIEW: Guelph Public Library Board for March 28, 2023

This is the first month of the newly reschedule Guelph Public Library Board meeting now on the fourth Monday instead the third Tuesday due to the change in the council schedule. This month, there appears to be nothing out of the ordinary with all the usual monthly reports plus some money matters and the annual report about an important library function, information technology!

NOTE #1: This meeting will take place in Programming Room at the Main Library on Norfolk Street, but you can also watch it on video via Cisco Webex. (Find the link on the library board’s webpage.)

NOTE #2: The meeting begins at 6 pm and is expected to wrap up around 8 pm.

NOTE #3: The Library does not make the complete agenda with reports available to the public, not the point form agenda.

Consent Agenda – There are six items on this part of the agenda including the minutes from the last meeting, correspondences, and the monthly scorecards for service capacity and utilization. We will also get the monthly update from CEO Steve Kraft, and there will be an operating variance report for the board’s information.

Presentations & Reports – There are four presentations for this meeting in the annual I.T. report and the preliminary budget variance report from 2022. There will also be the usual update about the new main library project, which includes something called the peer review progress report, and there will also be an update about the quest to seek partnerships for the project.

New Business – The board will wrap up the meeting with a discussion about a potential board retreat or training session, and a matter concerning the June board meeting date.
