A discussion followed as to the use of the upstairs rooms, equipment, etc., but no definite plans were made.

Rev. Ballinger and Mr. Scipio of the M. E. Church called upon the Board and asked permission to use a portion of the Library Building for their men's class on Sunday mornings, explaining their crowded condition at the church. It was decided to take this matter up at a future meeting to be called by the President.

The Board agreed that beginning Jan. 1st, 1927 each patron of the Library residing outside the city limits would be asked to pay one dollar ($1.00) per year for the use of books.

There being no further business the meeting adjourned.
