January 2013
  1. New copier installation:
As of this writing (January 3), we may end up having to return the new copier, which was delivered in early December. The sales person said we absolutely could use the coin-up to charge the public for faxing and scanning on the new Ricoh copier, which was the reason we bought it. The coin box guy was here today (finally!) to install it and he doesn’t think the coin box can be modified to charge for faxing and scanning using the Ricoh. They’re trying to get to the bottom of it, finding out who the sales person talked to about this being possible. As far as the coin box guy knows, a Konica is the only copier that can be set up to charge for scanning and faxing. Hopefully I’ll have more information by the time of the board meeting. 
  1. Building Upkeep:
Kurt has been working on taking care of some building maintenance issues: patching walls and painting in the meeting room and circulation area, as well as repainting portions of the maroon duct work in the adult side (paint was peeling). Kurt also ran the fax line to the new copier, which hopefully we’ll be able to take advantage of soon.
