The Homewood Public Library welcomed its newest board member, Sabrena Lopez, at the May 19 meeting.

Nancy Gildart ran for election to a full six-year term in the April 6 election. She won a two-year term as a write-in candidate in 2019. 

There was one seat open on the board when George Bouche decided not to run again, and no candidate filed to appear on the ballot. The open seat was posted, and Lopez was selected by the board to fill the vacancy, and sworn in at the meeting.

It was craziness and laughter at the Homewood Public Library when Dr. Gesundheit made a clown therapy visit.

The Homewood Public Library board failed on Wednesday to ratify a contract with its employees represented by AFSCME, saying the board never received a signed contract. At the library board’s May meeting, AFSCME members were anticipating the agreement would be ratified. The board went into an hour-long closed session meeting, and returned to the regular meeting saying, “due to questions and concerns raised by ASCME representation” and lack of a ratified contract, the board would not be voting.
