Old Business / Updates from Previous Action Items

Follow up re: lost/mishandled items by libraries, PLSDAC: At the Friday 4/6 PLSDAC meeting the attendees voted to leave OWWLAC policy as is and not suggest or write a separate policy for materials lost or mishandled by libraries (as opposed to patrons). The attendees voted that the existing Grievance policy is sufficient to handle needs, if and when directors/managers cannot reach agreement. Minutes of the PLSADAC meeting will be forthcoming and adopted at the June 6th meeting.
