The Library Board met for business with all members present but W. R. Smith & Mrs. McQueen. In the absence of the sec., Mr. Vawter was request to act for the evening.

Mr. W. A. Immel, architect & builder was present & at the request of the building committee presented plans for the building of a 20X20 ft. one story addition to west end of present Library structure and after leaving Mr. Immel & getting from him a rather delicate idea of the cost of such addition the members of the Board present approved favorable to the prospect and asked the Building & Grounds Com. To further canvass the situation & make some recommendation to the Board at an early date.

Mr. Cunningham, members of Br. & G. Com. Reported settlement with insurance companies on account of damage by fire to Building & Construction, the amount having been agreed upon $202.78 being quite satisfactory tot he Board.

Mr. Cunningham was further requested to see to the removal of a certain fireplace on accounts which would expire before another meeting. It was suggested that the amount now in force of $15.00 be raised to $2000.00.

The Librarian submitted the usual report as to the workings of the Library for the last month, which report was quite gratifying to the Board.
