v       Antrim Historical Society –
o       Neil Brown is taking over as the liason between the Historical Society and the Library as Lyman Gilmore is retiring.
o       The Historical Society’s storage room upstairs is out of space. Neil discussed with the trustees various proposals for spaces.
§       The Library agreed to get rid of some of the chairs under the hallway counter and give that space to the Historical Society, and put a lock on it; it is a possibility that shelves can be built.
§       In regards to storing archived documents in boxes, options include:
·       Building  new cabinets to match existing ones and replacing flimsy cabinets. (Kathy is concerned about load on floors.)
·       A second option does not involve cabinets in the middle, but simply building a more stable wall.
·       In addition, Neil would like to move the flag display to the middle wall and build larger cabinets where the flag display is currently.
·       Alternatives discussed: Ron has some art displays. Margie suggested partitions.
·       Time frame:2-5 years depending on collections coming in.
