Jan. 5, 1926

The West LaFayette Public Library Board met in regular session at the library with all members present.

The secretary's report was read and approved.

In order to avoid misunderstandings in the future, the secretary was required to insert in the minutes that the hourly wage of the assistant librarian should be 25c until further action of the Board.

The following bills were allowed and ordered paid:

Eva Dickey – Dec. Salary


Margaret Dickey – Assistant


The H. R. Hunting Co. - Books

Library Bureau – Supplies

After some discussion the Board authorized the Building and Grounds Committee to secure the services of an architect to make a study of the present Library building with a view to making larger use of it than we now are making.

The Book Committee was authorized to purchase seventy-five dollars worth of books during the month of January.

The Librarian's report was received and ordered filed.
