Present: Maggie Brogdon, Barbara Green, Richard Mays, Nick Noyes, Cathie Talbert, and Susan Massin

We approved the August minutes.

Librarian’s report
Susan reported that she has purchased the Mango Language program and that it has been activated. In October it will be available to patrons. Barbara will write a check from the Massin fund to pay for this. Funds from the Massin Memorial Fund will also be used to improve the library’s travel collection. Susan will be asking patrons for recommendations.

In October Susan will begin budget preparation. The selectmen are asking that current funding should be continued for 2013. Exterior painting of the front of the building will be included as a CIP item.
We may need to find someone new to shovel snow.

Susan noted that we need to have the carpets cleaned. Cathie suggested that we use the money still remaining in the building fund to pay for this. Susan will get quotes.
