The Weir Public Library Board met October 18. Members present: Linda Berning, Roxy Blessent, Cathy Holden, Karen Thompson, Melissa Gardner, Sue Ann Barnes and Stef Arbuckle.

Arbuckle reported on the progress of the conversion to SEKnFind. There are empty spaces on the shelves where some of the books have traveled to Iola to be processed into the cyberspace catalog.

The library is also processing books locally along with the regular operations of the library.

The patrons will continue to receive the friendly small services that the library has provided over the years.

Karen Thompson won the mean ugly housekeeper Miss Talitha doll from the library homecoming bake sale.

Proceeds from the fund raiser will go towards the Libri Foundation Grant for hard covered juvenile books.

Taylor Beckley and Skylar Zortz picked out the first books purchased with the grant money from the Kansas Book Festival. Beckley chose books by Rick Riordan and Zortz chose the Seeker series by Erin Hunter.
