The secretary’s report was approved.
The treasurer’s report was accepted and will be filed for audit. Our June 30, 2020 treasury balance was $43,740.74.
Joyce introduced Christopher Ilstrup, head of the Vermont Humanities Council, who joined us virtually. He gave us a brief history of their organization and an explanation of their funding. For this year, they will continue to offer their First Wednesdays programs to nine libraries, with a tenth to be offered virtually. This year’s fee will be on a sliding scale, with libraries contributing what they can.
