MEETING PREVIEW: Guelph Public Library Board for April 24, 2023

Every month the Guelph Public Library Board of Directors meets to talk about the latest issues facing all the various branches and programs in the library system. From covering a very diverse and active library community to the politics and pressures of building a brand new main library building on Baker Street, there’s always a lot to talk about at the board, and this is what’s coming up this month.

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 the usual 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 – The items for discussion this month include the usual update about the new main library project, plus a report from the Friends of the Guelph Public Library whose AGM took place last week, and a report from Ontario Library Service’s (OLS) Board Assembly. In other news, staff will present an HR review and a report called Library as a Safe Place.
