    1. We rethought the program and there will now be four groups instead of six. Each group will meet in its own room in the Mahwah library. Groups will have 25-minute time limits; participants will attend three sessions (identified below) in sequence. We will have color coded pieces of paper available so participants will know which group they are in. The fourth group will be attended by all participants in one room at the end of the evening.
    2. Topics for Groups, taken from e-mail on Discussion Ideas:
      1. How to build and maintain good working relationships with your mayor and council. This discussion will now include relationships between Boards and libraries and how to deal with foes of the library. Possible moderators: Larry, Judah and Jen.
