This was a joint meeting to discuss the iPAC with members of the Youth Services Advisory Council.

New information – KidsPAC will be ready in 4 weeks. The ASC has to decide when to launch it here. The goal is that we tweak it in advance before the launch.

An upgrade to Horizon will occur Tuesday of next week. This should not affect the iPAC or the circulation system.

IPAC changes previously agreed upon:


New iPAC recommendations:

New StaffPAC recommendations:

The Adult Services Advisory Council and the Youth Services Advisory Council will send liaisons to each other’s meetings to ensure consistency.

Other: Mary distributed information about the upcoming Riverway Storytelling Festival. She also said that Youth Services Departments are aware that the Summer Reading Program impacts the whole library. If anyone has concerns about this, call or email Mary.

Rawdon said that the overdue notices are now being done on 3-part forms, for those libraries that have had them in the past.

Next Meeting: Thursday, April 10 at 9:00 AM. The topic will not be the iPAC! Carol Germain will speak on marketing your library.
