AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           August 23, 2010

 

From:                          Lucy B. Gangone, Library Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution approving policies for the Library on the use of study and meeting rooms and the Lake County “Internet Access Policy”                       

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the resolution approving policies for the Library on the use of study and meeting rooms and the Lake County “Internet Access Policy” for libraries.

 

Analysis:

The Library Advisory Board met to discuss necessary changes to the use of the Library’s study and meeting rooms.  The study room policy has been revised to reflect the use of the donor name for each of the four study rooms, and to allow paid tutors the opportunity to reserve a study room in advance for a single session.

 

Revisions to the meeting room agreement include the requirement of a refundable damage deposit double the amount of the regular deposit for events that include food and/or beverages; the disclaimer that the library is not responsible for any articles left behind at the conclusion of the meeting; the inclusion of state sales tax in the fee schedule for for-profit groups and closed meetings; and other minor changes.

 

The revised Lake County BCC Policy LCC-45 on Internet Access for libraries was approved by the Lake County Library Advisory Board on June 17, 2010.  Leesburg Public Library is a member of the Lake County Library System through an Interlocal Agreement; this Agreement stipulates that County and Municipality agree to abide by system wide policies. The main changes to this policy are the inclusion of county-operated branch libraries and the addition of provision of wireless access at all libraries. In addition, patron downloading and uploading of information is no longer unacceptable use.

 

The Library Advisory Board voted on August 4, 2010 to recommend the revised policies to the City Commission for its approval.        

 

Options:

1.  Approve the resolution approving policies for the Library on the use of study and meeting rooms and the Lake County “Internet Access Policy”, or          

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

 

Fiscal Impact

There is no fiscal impact.
