Our guest speaker this morning was Lee Perkins, Director of the Rice Public Library, who provided us an update on the progress of the renovation work. Lee's report was all good news.
The work is on schedule and expected to wrap up in March, with an opening in May of this year. The move will add 11,000 square feet to the current building and Lee reports, "it looks beautiful". There will be a total of 28 parking spaces when complete, with parking for about 25 along the street in front. In 2024 the state is planning on completing sidewalks on both sides of the road which will improve usage of the street parking. The elevator is installed and operational. Much of the historical areas have been preserved and actually made more visible.
In other discussion this morning, Pam reports the recycling and shredding event is planned for the parking lot infront of the Post Office for April 9th. A total of $2,500 in sponsor support is required and she needs a team to support maketing ideas and publicity. Latter this morning she sent out a list of items that could be accepted for recycling.
Marie brought up the funds budgeted for the 3rd grade Classroom teachers for books. Eric informed us there are 4 classrooms this year. A discussion on funding followed, with a consensus that the funds were available to provide four $100 checks.
A book will be donated to the school libraries in the name of
