Cancel Book Nook Café Contract with Perry Clark
Bill Durrenberger contacted Perry Clark to inquire about canceling the library’s lease agreement with him for Book Nook Café. Clark responded by email saying he would not be able to open the café as planned and agreed to terminate the agreement. He volunteered to pay the agreement through December if necessary, but he wanted the security deposit returned. Durrenberger asked for immediate payment through June less the security deposit. Clark signed the termination and paid $150 ($450 rent minus $300 security deposit.)
Anthony Oliver arrived at 5:47 p.m.
The Board discussed the possibility of seeking a donation equivalent to what Clark would have paid for the full contract.

Discuss and approve Future Book Nook Café Licensing

Motion: To authorize Joan Roth to sign a contract with Java Plus with a 6 month term of $150 per month and a $300 security deposit.
