February Task Force USL BoT Update

  • Final Paperwork on New Building:
    • Final sign-off has moved up to Feb. 23rd, 2021 and we can then occupy the building.
    • Warranties on all aspects of the building start February 26th, 2021
    • We are free to move material in now (as long as any dent, scratch, etc. damage is on USL’s nickel)
  • Moving the Technology to the New Building:
    • Loly is checking with K-20 to ensure the new building is “hot”
    • Loly and I can move all equipment with help from Nathaniel Martin (high school IT)
    • Nathaniel has volunteered to do a pre-walkthrough as well as help us disengage all equipment from the current site carefully and correctly. He will also help with the install at the new building as needed
    • Wireless antenna can remain at the old building – pending approval: Claudia & Joy
    • Wireless will also be available in the new building
  • Shelving:
    • Shelving framework has been laid out in place
    • Installation next Monday & Tuesday
    • Library staff will decide shelving heights, types, etc. on Monday
  • Front Counter:
    • It is set up and will be secured to the floor on Monday
  • Signage:
    • Only bid so far is too expensive, $1400 for seven 30” Letters
    • Can order those letters online for $700 or buy stencils at about $350
    • I’ve put out an inquiry to Don Smith, muralist and artist, to see if he is interested
  • Keys:
    • Exterior doors rekeyed to one master key
    • I’ve tagged and hung all keys in a key box for the staff to distribute as needed
  • Storage:
    • Cleaned up and room to move
    • All Friends materials are now in one place
  • Next Month:
    • The Task Force will end its work as it will have met its goal of “coordinating the new library building”
    • A final Task Force Report covering 2014 to 2020 will be available for reading online
