  1. Library staff changes: Julianna Arms’ resignation letter of June 14, 2023 was presented to the Board:

Dear Stone Ridge Library Board,

This letter is to formally notify you that I will be resigning the Children’s Services position for the library on December 20, 2024. As difficult as this feels in my heart, my duties the director and head teacher of Lederman Children’s Center are showing me that I need to step fully into that role, and pass on the children’s librarian baton.

There are not enough meaningful words to convey my love and appreciation for the opportunity to work at the library for the past 24 years. Being a part of the Stone Ridge Library has been a huge part of my life as well as the lives of my children. I feel honored to have been able to be part of the growth and change of the children’s room and the collection. It has also been a privilege and a joy to work with our esteemed director, Jody Ford. I have benefited from observing and modeling her kind thoughtful leadership.

She is always supportive, and encouraging with ideas, programming, and changes. It is a joy to see the sparkle in Jody’s eye when there is a discussion of moving furniture or creating a new floor plan. The Stone Ridge Library is a charming and beautiful building because of Jody’s vision and guidance, as well, or course, the support and leadership of the board. It is astonishing to remember how much growth there has been for the library when you remember back some 25 years ago. What a treasure to have been a part of that development.

During the next year and a half, I’ll do what is needed to help support the library board, Jody, and the next person hired for children’s services. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help out during the transition.

The library will always be part of me, and I will continue to be a supporter of this very important part of our community, the Stone Ridge Library.

With warm regards, gratitude,

and respect,

Julianna Arms

The Board will discuss hiring a replacement for Ms Arms at the next Board meeting.

  1. Buildings and grounds/ Grants: JA proposed that a sum of up to $500 be set aside for a grant-writer of the Director’s choice to complete such grant-writing duties for the Library as the Director deems appropriate. Sarah Lynn Graves seconded the motion. The motion was unanimously passed.
  1. Grant priorities: For upcoming state grants, it was moved that the orders of priority be changed so that:

             (a) installing mini split heating and AC systems and seeking funding in pursuance of that work be the primary funding priority; and

            (b) the second project priority for upcoming state grant applications be the building out of the pavilion. EP seconded the motion and both parts of the motion                         were passed unanimously by the Board.

  1. Upcoming events: July 6 – film night at Hasbrouck House to benefit the LIbrary: The Wizard of Oz

Approval of November minutes tabled until next meeting.

3. Treasurer’s Report – John

Met with Foundation to give an overview of Library’s finances

4. Director’s Report – Jody

I hope to get a person for each fundraiser to shadow the current chair people so that we have a plan in place when current organizers retire.

Julianna has begun in-person story hours for this year.

First class visit from High Meadow School this week. We have a plan in place for regular visits from first through fourth grade classes if the teachers would like to take advantage of it.

Our new calendar is in place on the website.

We have given out 180 of the 234 Rochester Memberships.

Book recommendation column with the Shawangunk Journal along with a number of other area libraries.

We are no longer purchasing books on CD. We will use that budget to purchase ebooks and streaming audio books instead. Our share of the resource cost for e-materials should be in the range of $7000 a year.

Our current art show by David Shaengold has been very successful. Mr. Shaengold is donating half of the proceeds of his sales to the library. The other half will go to the Marbletown Food Pantry.

Facebook and Instagram followers are up.

I am working on the Annual Report for Mid-Hudson and the Division of Library Development now. Statistics for circulation in 2022 are up for both adult and children’s fiction as well as electronic use of materials. The one area where statistics are down is in holds (or materials loaned from other libraries.) I believe this can be explained by the widespread use of streaming services such as Hoopla and Libby in lieu of borrowing materials from other libraries. I will have a full report at the March meeting.

5. Buildings & Grounds – Ethan

Deb Gray has new plan for Bookshop Garden area to begin mid-April, early May.

Need to revise disaster policy to include active shooter response (emergency button to Sheriff’s Office). Tabled until next meeting when paperwork will be available.

7. Outreach Committee -Sarah

Survey going out to PTAs with five major goals addressed.
