Question: Ignoring the overall value of Chapter 43, in discussion bullet point #5 of the Responsibilities of the Board, what is the best document to ensure "the library is obeying Federal, State, local, etc. statutes and laws. Is it the annual report? Or some other document.

We get an audit of our books regularly. Usually a friendly local accountant will help
Jeremy Bennett

Also - tell your director to ask you for help! I'm on the Winnefox System Board (for two total meetings, but still) and I had no idea of the current budget issues.

Rookie question here: do all digital items count as circs like physical items do?

How do you leverage the 'entertainment' part of the library systems versus the 'education' piece? I see that as a big issue right now, especially as we're moving back to regular usage

What are all of your libraries doing to encourage seniors to reengage with the programs available at your facilities? Any marketing initiatives you’ve put in place? Specifically those to help them feel safe in a social environment.
