Director's Report-Bill Baars <br /> • Baars has checked on what the City policy is regarding people sleeping on outside benches. The only <br /> restriction is that people cannot sleep on the benches overnight from 10:00 pm to 6:00 am. <br /> • Staff from Beaverton Library visited today to see the AMH (Automated Materials Handling Machine). <br /> They have a machine at their library but do not have the feature that sorts the material onto carts. <br /> • On Saturday,November 18, the Library held an Open House celebrating the completion of the remodeling <br /> project. A lot of people came and there was great interest in getting a tour of the back room featuring the <br /> AMH. There were also stations on each floor highlighting various Library services. Most popular were <br /> Elephant and Piggy in the Children's Department and the Reference Department printing off copies from <br /> microfilm of the front page of the Oregonian on someone's birth date. Baars thanked Niland and Perigo <br /> for volunteering to help out that day. <br /> • Baars said the Library is working on a Strategic Plan. It is in the preliminary stages and he wants to <br /> involve the Library Managers and the Marketing/Innovation Committee as they work on a 5 year plan that <br /> would look at current services and how to implement visionary changes as we look towards the future. <br /> This would include long range facility changes. Baars would like to emphasize that the Library is <br /> considered by many to be a community center. Baars will ask the LAB for their input as the work moves <br /> forward on the Strategic Plan. <br /> 6. LO Reads Update-Bill Baars <br /> • There was a nice article in HelloLO about LO Reads.
