Proposed Bylaw Change Announcement

On June 3, 2020, at the Mount Pleasant Library Board of Director monthly meeting, the Board will be taking action to amend a section of the Association bylaws. The goal of the change will be to allow official meetings to take place using videoconferencing and over the phone when circumstances do not allow for physical meetings at the library.

Article VII, Sec. 4 of the bylaws currently reads:

The Board of Directors shall meet in the library monthly for the purpose of transacting business at a time to be determined by action of the Board; the Board shall have the power to suspend any monthly meeting or meetings by vote.

The Board will vote to add an additional sentence:

The Board of Directors shall meet in the library monthly for the purpose of transacting business at a time to be determined by action of the Board; the Board shall have the power to suspend any monthly meeting or meetings by vote. In circumstances that are beyond the control of the Board, if a meeting cannot occur at the library, the Board may meet and conduct business utilizing videoconferencing software and/or phone conference.

This notice will serve as official notice of the potential amendment as per Article XV, Sec. 1, B. of the Mount Pleasant Free Public Library Association, Inc. Incorporated Bylaws.

Any questions can be sent to mountpleasant@wlnonline.org.

Dear Neighbors,

The past year has been one of challenge and transition. Changes in our board, staff, and director bring us to a new place. These changes have culminated in a stronger library with a new direction and a renewed focus on the future of the Mount Pleasant Community.

A friend recently wrote, “The communities library [sic] serve are the true collections; librarians the weavers of community narratives and understandings.” I believe this is the very core of what we as a library should do every day. While the statistics and recognition show the dedicated work of our staff, it fails to truly capture the spirit of what we do.

It is about the people who come to us every day. It is about the little girl from Pittsburgh who comes to visit her grandmother and insists on visiting our library.

It is about the gentleman who needed a computer and the internet to check the fire maps to see if his friends in northern California were in danger.

It is about a teenager who is reading thousands of pages a week outside of his schoolwork and the ones who come here to meet with their tutor.

All that we have accomplished and helped our community accomplish has been because our supporters have seen the value we bring to the community and stepped up to ensure we can continue to serve everyone who comes to us.

As we prepare to launch into a new year I ask that you consider to support us by becoming a member of the Mount Pleasant Free Public Library Association.
