The Moniteau County Library board met Wednesday, Nov. 18 to discuss new property and the coronavirus.
With Moniteau County being classified as a red zone, the board decided that the library will now require those who wish to enter to wear a face mask, which the library will provide upon entrance if needed. The library will again offer curbside pick-up to those who wish to use that service.
The meeting started off with the director's report. The library has received its final $5,000 payment for its 2020 summer reading grant. Next year, the library is planning on requesting $8,000 for the 2021 edition of the Summer Reading Program.
The library's adult craft night was held at the California Nutrition Center on Nov. 5. There were 18 people in attendance. Since the Nutrition Center has made the decision to no longer host activities within its facility, the December craft night will be held at the library where they plan on having an afternoon and evening session to provide for social distancing. So far, 20 have signed up.
Finally, the group talked about how board member Paul Bloch has put in a lot of time and effort on the library's new property. He helped finish the parking lot, has installed plywood and tiles and has been making efforts to show the property to those interested.
The Moniteau County Library board's next regular meeting will be Wednesday, Dec. 16 at 10 a.m.
