New receipt printer: Rice said the old printer died, so she did have to purchase a new one.
2016 - 2017 Budget: The City Council will be meeting tonight on the Library FY17 budget.
2015-2016 Budget update: Rice presented a print-out of the library budget as of 3/7/16 which showed the salary and insurance line items which need to be corrected because of the misunderstanding of sharing of the Police Dept. secretary. Also the library is over budget on equipment maintenance and expense largely due to computer usage being up and the installation of the "Deep Freeze" virus protection software. Rice will meet with the council to explain the computer usage and expenses.
Business donation letter: Rice wanted clarification from the board members on which businesses should receive a letter. The board agreed that all businesses within the Arnolds Park City limits should be sent a letter.
