The Nanuet Library Board met Tuesday to discuss a variety of topics, including a recent donation to the library.
Recently, the Friends of the Nanuet Library donated $4,000 to the library to purchase a new LCD projector. Library staff found a new one to buy for just half that. At the meeting, it was said that the library might use the extra $2,000 to buy a SMART Board to put in a room in the children’s section of the library.
A museum membership in the Storm King Art Center will also be added to museum passes using the balance.
Other topics discussed at the meeting included:
- The library will possibly look to add lights to the staff parking lot, as there aren’t any back there.
- The board briefly talked about the plans for the library’s new air conditioning system, which there is more information about here and here. Board President Ellen Kimmel wanted to clarify earlier remarks, saying that during the construction, the library might have to close for a day or two, but she isn’t positive yet. She said the work requires large cranes to lift the units on top of the roof. She also said it’s up to the state to determine the time frame for the project.
- Ken Lehner, president of the Rockland Boulders, personally contributed $300 to the library for purchase of a chess table for the teen space after the library’s grant application didn’t meet the intent of the Rockland Community Foundation Boulders Benefit Fund. The team sent along a note telling the library Lehner grew up playing chess and wants those that visit the library to share in passion for the game.
