THRU:                  RENEE KRAUSE, CMC, DEPUTY CITY CLERK I

DATE:                  JUNE 4, 2014

SUBJECT:           AMEND THE CIRCULATION POLICY TO UPDATE LANGUAGE AND CIRCULATION DETAILS ON ITEMS

Background

Following is the excerpt from the June 3, 2014 regular meeting minutes on the recommended updates from Library staff to the Circulation Policy in addition to what the Board reviewed and approved at the May 6, 2014 regular meeting.

PENDING BUSINESS

B. Amendments to the Circulation Policy for General Updates to Language and Circulation Details on Items

 

Chair Gordon read the title into the record.

 

Ms. Dixon explained that last month they saw the amendments to the fees adding music. These changes address the updates and general housekeeping to the language plus increasing the loan limit.

 

There was a brief discussion regarding the difference in Book and Book 3 categories; increasing to a standard three week period for everything; and removing the actual fines or fees from the policy level since realistically policies are only updated periodically where fines and fees are updated or changed on an annual basis.

 

Chair Gordon requested a motion to approve the circulation policy amendments.

 

PORTER/SMITH – SO MOVED.

 

There was no further discussion.

 

VOTE. YES. NON-OBJECTION. UNANIMOUS CONSENT.

 

Motion carried.

 

Recommendation: Approve the request to amend the Homer Public Library Circulation Policy.
