Mrs. Skinner called the meeting to order at 7: 15 p.m. She announced that the Community Skating Rink non-profit group has contributed $2000 to the Nesmith Library. In their letter, the Board of Directors for the Community Skating Rink stated that this portion of their assets was given to the Nesmith Library for the "betterment of the community and the youth of today and tomorrow". P. Skinner extended sincere thanks to this group for their generosity.


Upon motion by D. Desrosiers, seconded by D. McDonald, the minutes of the July 7, 1998 meeting were accepted as read.


P. Skinner advised the Board that ads for the position of Director had been placed in several papers and on many on-line sites. No ad was placed in the NY Times due to the high cost. Discussion followed regarding interview content and process as well as a general schedule. Specifics will be taken up at the August 11th meeting.


J Gross reported that the time clock on the AC unit does not have battery backup and is a single day clock. D. McDonald will contact Steve Peach at Dennis Mires, The Architect to determine whether or not this clock met established specs.


Next meeting is scheduled for August 11, 1998 at 7:00 p.m.


Meeting adjourned at 9:55 p.m.


Respectfully submitted,


Lucie Lachance

Vice Chairman
