The Moniteau County Library Board met July 15 to elect new officers.

Mike Staton is now president, with Paul Bloch serving as vice president, Holly Bieri as treasurer, Mark Bogue as secretary and Lou Ann Wolfe as member-at-large.

The board discussed some updates that have been happening with the library. For starters, the board submitted an application for Annual State Aid.

The library is now allowing people to check out jigsaw puzzles and board games. In repairs, four furnace filters have been replaced and a new toilet seat has been installed in the women's bathroom.

As far as the 2020 Summer Reading Program goes, the library had 144 children registered, which is down from the 711 in 2019. Jamestown readers checked out 49 book bags in June at the library's community stops, and 174 people entered the weekly drawing of the Story Trail in June with, winners receiving McDonald's frozen cokes.

A Prize Plaza will be open in Heyssel Hall for one week to reward students registered in the Summer Reading Program. They can either come by and shop or if they're unable to, a selection of prizes will be delivered to their day cares.

With summer school taking off, STEAM kits circulated 50 times during June due to teachers checking them out. California's summer school students in second through sixth grades came to the library to check out books and use the computers.

The board's next meeting is at 10 a.m. Aug. 19.
