3. Director’s Report.


Anita Evans expressed her thanks to the committee, with special acknowledgement of outgoing members, for their service during the 2005-2006 academic year.  


Anita reported on the progress being made on the proposed library café.  She presented a sample menu that Stefan Smith had put together.  William Barillas suggested that the café commit to providing fair trade, organic and shade grown coffee.  He also suggested the planning consider including a stage and sound system. A question was asked regarding whether the library would receive any of the profits.  It was explained that Chartwell’s will be investing heavily into the café remodeling, and so it was unlikely that the library would share in the profits. 


Anita noted that the library lab mod project is moving forward at full speed.


4. Final Report.


Karl Kattchee, our fearless leader, requested assistance in editing the draft final report.  The committee offered editing help and suggestions for additions to the report.


5. The meeting adjourned at 2:25 p.m.


Respectfully submitted,

Cynthia Berlin
