The woman working at the Library Desk asked permission to interrupt the meeting long enough to inform us of the hour changes of the Dansville Public Library. Tuesdays they will be open from 1 PM until 8:30 PM, so we have the option of keeping our meeting the first Tuesday of every month to 7 - 8:30 or starting at 6:30 - 8:30. This will be discussed at our next regular business meeting.
