(As approved corrected August 17, 2006)

The San Francisco Public Library Commission held a regular meeting on Thursday, July 20, 2006 in the Koret Auditorium, Main Library.

 

The meeting was called to order by President Higueras at 4:05pm.

 

Commissioners present: Bautista, Gomez, Higueras, and Munson.

Vice President Coulter and Commissioner Chin’s arrival was expected.  

A quorum was present.

 

Commissioner Kane joined the meeting at 4:11pm. Commissioner Chin joined the meeting at 4:22pm.

 

President Higueras announced that he was re-ordering the agenda to take up Agenda Item #6 first followed by Agenda Item #3 then the rest of the matters would be taken up in the order posted.

 

AGENDA ITEM #6 GIFT RECOGNITION POLICY

 

City Librarian Luis Herrera outlined the various aspects of the proposed revision to the Commission’s existing Gift Recognition Policy #602 as well as recommended that Policy #603 Neighborhood Library Campaign Gift Recognition Policy be rescinded as it would be superseded by and conflicted with the proposed revised Gift Recognition Policy. The City Librarian pointed out that a detailed and specific San Francisco Public Library Donor Recognition Standards document was referenced in the revised policy and invited Friend’s Executive Director Donna Bero provide the Commissioners with an overview of that document.

 

Ms. Bero outlined the details the San Francisco Public Library Donor Recognition Standards document referenced in the proposed revised Gift Recognition Policy #602. Ms. Bero noted that this policy revision was a part of the ongoing collaborative process between the Friends and the Library to standardize and clarify gifts and how to recognize gifts benefiting the Library. Ms. Bero discussed how these changes highlighted the voter’s primary role in funding the projects. For additional specifics, the Friend’s Executive Director introduced Friend’s staff member Elena Engle who presented examples of the proposed revised text and signage to the Commissioners. In response to Commissioners’ questions, Deputy City Attorney Catharine Barnes noted that it would be necessary to rescind Library Commission Neighborhood Library Campaign Gift Recognition Policy #603 as its provisions conflicted with the proposed revised Library Commission Gift Recognition Policy #602.

 

Public comment on AGENDA ITEM #6 GIFT RECOGNITION POLICY

 

An anonymous member of the public spoke in opposition to support for the Friends of the Library; suggested that the agenda item improperly referenced another document; remarked that the issue was properly crediting what the voters made possible; and observed that the people owned the Library not private interests.

 

Mr. Peter Warfield commented that the proposed standards had not been publicly discussed and that he found the wording potentially misleading suggesting that there was no limitation of the credit given to just furniture, fixtures, and equipment, and that the public was funding the buildings. Mr. Warfield expressed concern that use of term “at” could lead to private names being placed on locations on the outside of branch library buildings recommending action on this item be postponed.

 

Ms. Janice Scalpetti, Friends of the Library, called attention to the great success of the opening of the new Mission Bay Branch Library, noting that it had already become very popular and busy, and called attention to upcoming Friends of the Library sponsored program, Poet’s Eleven” and others programs featuring the City’s Poet Laureate.

 

Commission discussion of AGENDA ITEM #6 GIFT RECOGNITION POLICY

 

Responding to a query by Commissioner Gomez, Ms. Bero noted that the Friends had many ways to recognize donors of “in-kind” goods and services but that the purpose of this policy was to recognize financial support.

 

 President Higueras noted that the detailed standards associated with the revised Gift Recognition Policy were the result of long and careful process and that it was necessary as well as wise to have uniform standards in place to recognize donor support for the Branch Library Improvement program (BLIP) projects. President Higueras proposed that the draft language be clarified so as not to be misinterpreted and make clear that these gifts made possible furniture, fixtures, and equipment that could not be funded with bond funds for the branch library renovation and new construction projects principally funded by the people of San Francisco. President Higueras underscored that private support supplemented the predominate public role in these projects and found the document through and clear.

 

Vice President Coulter joined the meeting at 4:40pm.

 

Commissioner Chin observed that while donors played an important and vital role in support of the branch library renovation program it was important to limit the numbers of donor signage. Commissioner Chin also suggested that the signage language be modified to avoid misinterpretation. 

 

In response to questions by Commissioner Munson it was clarified that text on the proposed plaques would be changed to reflect any changes in the draft policy.

 

In response to questions concerning this policy and gifts not received through the Friends by Commissioner Kane, Deputy City Attorney Catharine Barnes clarified that the proposed revised Gift Recognition Policy #602 was related to the Friend’s Capital Campaign. Ms. Barnes then discussed the question of the “permanence “of donor designations.

 

In response a question by President Higueras, Ms. Bero responded that that had been no conflicts with gifts from non-Friend’s related donors to the Library. There followed a discussion concerning the proposed term of 30 years for the expected tenure of “gifts” with Ms. Bero noting that there could be continued recognition of gifts in other forms after the thirty year period. Commissioner Gomez observed that thirty years seemed a sufficiently “permanent” period of time to recognize a significant gift to the Library.

 

President Higueras proposed for the consolidated donor plaques, to replace the text “The Neighborhood Library Campaign” with “Branch Library renovation made possible through bond funds overwhelmingly approved by the voters of San Francisco in 2000. Funds for furnishings and equipment raised by volunteers of the Neighborhood”.

 

In the interest of economy of text Commissioner Munson suggested instead “Branch Library renovation made possible through bond funds approved by the voters of San Francisco in 2000.Funds for furnishings and equipment raised by volunteers of the Neighborhood”.

 

MOTION: by Commissioner Munson, 2nd by Commissioner Chin for rescinding Library Commission Policy #603 Neighborhood Library Campaign Gift Recognition Policy and adopting the proposed revised Library Commission Gift Recognition Policy #602 as amended.

 

ACTION:  7-0 AYE (Bautista, Chin, Coulter, Higueras, Gomez, Kane, and Munson)

 

President Higueras relinquished the Chair to Vice President Coulter and left the meeting at 4:50pm. Vice President Coulter then resumed the meeting’s agenda in the original order

 

AGENDA ITEM #1 PUBLIC COMMENT

 

 

Ms. Sue Cauthen, Vice Chair of the Board of Supervisors’ Library Citizen’s Advisory Committee, informed the Commissioners concerning the LCAC’s recent actions in support of the Library’s 2006-07 Budget transfer of $4 million in Library funds to the Bond Program; noting that the Citizen’s Advisory Committee wished to move the remaining BLIP projects forward quickly and to that end was supportive of providing additional funds and staffing to the Branch Library Improvement Program.

 

An anonymous member of the public commented on: restrictions on use of Library Preservation fund monies, about the Controller’s Office’s methods of accounting for library funds, suggested that over the life of Prop. E $15 million in library funds would turned back to the City’s General Fund, and that the Library focused on serving donors rather than taxpayers.

 

Mr. Peter Warfield thanked Vice President Coulter for requesting that informational documents be made available when he had been unable to attend a meeting; suggested that President Higueras had not recognized the public as a possible source of funds for libraries, calling attention to the 19% increase in public funding  for the library budget; and found conflict between statements in the June 15th  City Librarian’s Report and a June 1st remark he attributed the Chief of Adult Services Marcia Schneider.

 

 

AGENDA ITEM #2 APPROVAL OF THE JUNE 15, 2006 LIBRARY COMMISSION MEETING MINUTES

 

 

Public Comment on AGENDA ITEM #2 APPROVAL OF THE JUNE 15, 2006 LIBRARY COMMISSION MEETING MINUTES

 

An anonymous member of the public commented that they had been prepared to discuss the June 1st minutes that were not yet approved; applauded the greater length of these minutes as better; but found a page two report of Mr. Kimo Crossman’s comments inaccurate.

 

Mr. Peter Warfield noted that he had not attended this meeting but that he had listened to it on audiotape; he again thanked Vice President Coulter for requesting that he be provided with copies of information materials available at the meeting; commented on the City Librarian’s Report on additional hours pointing out that the cost estimates presented were for Monday hours only and suggested that a clarifying “Monday” be added to the discussion of this report at the top of page 7.

 

Commission discussion of AGENDA ITEM #2 APPROVAL OF THE JUNE 15, 2006 LIBRARY COMMISSION MEETING

 

The City Librarian in response to Commissioner’s questions agreed that the cost estimates chart reflected the costs for additional Monday hours and it was agreed that this clarification should be added to the Minutes report of this discussion.

 

MOTION: by Commissioner Chin, 2nd by Commissioner Bautista for approval of the Library Commission Meeting Minutes of April 20, 2006 as amended.

 

ACTION:  6-0 AYE (Bautista, Chin, Coulter, Gomez, Kane, and Munson)

 

AGENDA ITEM #3 WESTERN ADDITION & GLEN PARK BRANCH LIBRARIES

 

Branch Library Improvement Program (BLIP) Manager Marilyn Thompson again presented an overview of the bids and her recommendations for the Western Addition Branch Library Renovation Project, (copy attached). The BLIP Manager once more described the bid results received on May 10, and discussed the competitive bid process that resulted in a low bid that left a $997.000 gap in the project budget. Ms. Thompson

noted that the bid period was set to expire on August 8th and that it was her recommendation that the Commission approve adjustment of the project budget to cover the shortfall. Ms. Thompson declared that that there was no likelihood of getting a bid with lower costs, and that additional delay could be costly and have a likely result that did not save any money. Ms. Thompson concluded her recap of the Western Addition Branch Library Renovation Project with a brief description of proposed add alternates and by noting that there would be a net increase in linear feet of shelving for collections in the renovated facility.

 

Turning next to the new Glen Park Branch Library to be located in a newly constructed mixed commercial- residential -public use facility, the BLIP Manager reported that five bids (copy attached) had been received for the interior work that the Library would undertake when the developer of the building turned over the completed shell. Ms. Thompson reported that the low bid was $597,200 over the project’s budget but under the estimated increase in construction costs that had been projected. Ms Thompson then presented a brief overview of the budget and plans for the new branch facility, and recommended that the Commission also increase this project’s budget. The BLIP Manager observed that after transferring $997,000 to the Western Addition and $597,200 to the Glen Park Project Budgets the Program Reserve balance would remain at $765,000. Therefore, Ms. Thompson reported funding was available to award both the Western Addition and Glen Park projects now prior to the $4 Million transfer becoming effective with the final approval of the 2006-07 Library Budget by the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor.

 

Public comment on AGENDA ITEM #3 WESTERN ADDITION & GLEN PARK BRANCH LIBRARIES

 

An anonymous member of the public found little to say other than to comment that how the funding became available was a long story; expressed concern with the continuing high construction costs bids received; but suggested that at this point there was little to do but go ahead and spend the additional money. This person expressed concern that the bid summaries did not provide information on the ranking of project priorities.

 

Mr. John Templeton, Friend’s Board member, recalled the excellent work that the low bidder had done at the Excelsior Branch Library suggesting that a similar good job was needed at the Western Addition Branch Library; and urged that the proposed renovation project go forward as soon as possible.  Mr. Templeton also suggested changes in the proposed bookmobile interim services plan to serve the south of Geary Boulevard  portion of the branch’s service area and also called for interim computer access resources to meet the pressing needs of the youth in that community.

 

Mr. Peter Warfield expressed happiness that there would be additional shelf space at the Western Addition and Glen Park Branches but expressed concern with the level of information provided concerning the bids; asking why the large cost increases over previous estimates; and what that might mean for the future of the program. Mr. Warfield also questioned the cited cost per square foot at the new Glen Park Branch given the size of its budget.

 

Mr. Michael Hillson, a Western Addition Branch user; cited recent reports of widespread construction costs increases that explained the situation facing these projects.

 

Sue Cauthen, Vice Chair of the Board of Supervisors Library Citizen’s Advisory Committee (LCAC) recommend that the Commission approve the additional funding noting that the LCAC supported the improvements to the branch libraries as promised, and noted that the Advisory Committee also supported the proposed allocation of the $480,000 in reserve funds for additional public services hours on Sunday and Mondays; and hoping that these additional hours could begin right away.

 

Commission discussion of AGENDA ITEM #3 WESTERN ADDITION & GLEN PARK BRANCH LIBRARIES

 

The City Librarian reported that the Board of Supervisors had approved on its first reading the Library’s proposed 2006/07 Budget, including the transfer of $4 million to the Bond Program. Then in response to questions by Commissioners Munson and Kane, Mr. Herrera seconded Ms. Thompson’s recommendations that the Commission act to approve an increase of $997,000 in the budget of the Western Addition Branch Library renovation Project and the $597, 200 budget increase for the new Glen Park Branch Library and go forward with these projects now.

 

MOTION: by Commissioner Munson, 2nd by Commissioner Bautista for approval of the proposed increases in the project Budgets for the Western Addition and Glen Park Branch Library renovation projects.

 

ACTION:  6-0 AYE (Bautista, Chin, Coulter, Gomez, Kane, and Munson)

 

AGENDA ITEM #4 BLIP MANAGER’S REPORT

 

                       

Branch Library Improvement Program Manager Marilyn Thompson presented her regular monthly reports on Budget, Schedule, Active Projects, Construction, and Community Outreach and noted there would be no informational or special reports.  The Bond Program Manager noted that there had been $44,886,983 in expenditures and encumbrances to date.

 

The Branch Library Improvement Program Manager next reported on active projects: new construction; renovations; presented a report on construction work currently underway; and reported on ongoing community outreach activities, (copy attached). Ms Thompson ended her report with a presentation of slides of the new Mission Bay Branch Library’s Opening Day festivities

 

 

Public comment on AGENDA ITEM #4 BLIP MANAGER’S REPORT

 

An anonymous member of the public found Ms. Thompson’s slides for the most part readable, discussed the proposed addition of branch library public services hours; and regretted missing the Mission Bay Branch Library’s opening festivities.

 

Mr. Peter Warfield found the Mission Bay Branch opening festive; but expressed concern that books were insufficiently prominently displayed in contrast to CDs and DVDs. Mr. Warfield noted that new Branch appeared to be nice and comfortable, and again raised questions concerning the cost per square foot of the new Glen Park Branch Library.  

                       

Commission discussion of AGENDA ITEM #4 BLIP MANAGER’S REPORT

       

Commissioner Bautista commended everyone who had a part in making the opening of the new Mission Bay Branch Library such a wonderful success. She noted that as the Library’s first mixed use facility developed as a joint venture with the Redevelopment Agency, it was an outstanding success. Commissioner Bautista also lauded the Friends effective grassroots campaign that raised funds to furnish and equip this newest neighborhood library. In response to questions by Commissioner Chin, Ms. Thompson briefly discussed the status of the proposed new Visitacion Valley Branch Library project.

 

Responding to questions by Vice President Coulter, the BLIP Manager explained that the noted $165 per square foot cost was for the bids for the interior work not the cost of the entire project which also included a portion of the cost of the shell of the building.

 

The City Librarian reported that he had submitted a clarifying letter to the editor in response to Vice President Coulter’s inquiry regarding recent press reports concerning the renovation of the Eureka Valley-Harvey Milk Memorial Branch Library

 

In response to a question by Commissioner Munson, the Deputy City Attorney Catharine Barnes clarified which General Fund derived Library Funds were being proposed to be transferred to the Bond Program

 

 

AGENDA ITEM #5 MAIN LIBRARY PROCUREMENT RESOLUTION

 

City Librarian Luis Herrera introduced Chief of the Main Library Kathy Lawhun who presented a detailed report explaining Main Library staff’s extensive internal review process and the ergonomic rationale for requesting the Library Commission approve a resolution (copy attached) asking that the Board of Supervisors approve a sole source contract to allow the Library to acquire specific kinds of durable and attractive furnishings for planned renovation of the Main Library’s First Floor.

 

Public comment on AGENDA ITEM #5 MAIN LIBRARY PROCUREMENT RESOLUTION

 

An anonymous member of the public found nothing in Ms. Lawhun’s presentation that would indicate to them that a competitive bidding process could not have been employed to achieve the desired result.

 

Mr. Peter Warfield criticized the proposal as double whammy against competitive bidding saying that this process limited choices. Mr. Warfield suggested that there could be many sources to meet the specified needs; urged the Commissioners to reject this option; and noted that this action did not look good and the matter should be put out to a competitive bid.

Commission discussion of AGENDA ITEM #5 MAIN LIBRARY PROCUREMENT RESOLUTION

 

Commissioner Bautista recalled that there had been an extensive review process conducted to identify very high standard s for appropriate furnishings needed for Main Library.

 

In response to questions by Commissioner Kane; Deputy City Attorney Catharine Barnes explained why this request for authorization for a sole source contract was not unusual and was an appropriate option. Ms. Barnes described the City’s often complex rules governing how requests for proposal were to be written that would otherwise not allow the Library a means to acquire items that met these specific needs. The Deputy City Attorney noted that in addition to the Commission meeting there would be further opportunity for those who wished to ask questions regarding the appropriateness of this option before the Board of Supervisors. Ms. Lawhun noted that distribution of these furnishings by their manufacturers were allocated by geographic zones and that there was no option to consider purchasing what was wanted elsewhere and then bring it here. Commissioner Gomez reported that it was not at all unusual for City departments to choose this option when seeking non-standard or specialized products. Commissioner Chin observed that she trusted library staff to maintain our high standards. The City Librarian noted that this project was a key element in the planned renovation of the Main Library.

 

MOTION: by Commissioner Bautista, 2nd by Commissioner Chin for approval of the proposed Resolution urging the Board of Supervisors to approve an ordinance waiving the competitive requirements of San Francisco Administrative Code section 21.1 and authorizing the Purchaser to negotiate and issue a purchase order for interior furniture/workstations and moveable partitions for the Main Library renovation from One Workplace, a Steelcase distributor, as a sole source. 

 

ACTION:  6-0 AYE (Bautista, Chin, Coulter, Gomez, Kane, and Munson)

Friends of the Library Executive Director Donna Bero congratulated everyone who had worked so hard to make the opening of the new Mission Bay Branch Library such an outstanding success, and called attention to the 1st Anniversary celebrations at the renovated Excelsior Branch Library.

 

The Friend’s Executive Director then introduced Marian Chatfield Taylor of the Friends of the Library’s Capital Campaign for Neighborhood Libraries to present the details of these recent Capital Campaign supported activities. Ms. Chatfield-Taylor described the extensive volunteer effort that made the Opening Day festivities at the new Mission Bay Branch Library so enjoyable. She described the various activities that took place throughout the day as well as noted that the new facility was already very busy and active. Ms. Chatfield-Taylor then reported on the festivities marking the 1st Anniversary of the reopening of the Excelsior Branch Library, including more than 200 library users singing “Happy Birthday” to the renovated branch Library, the first completed project in the Bond Program. Ms. Bero then called attention to the beautiful public art that included a quote from Commissioner Gomez at the Mission Bay Branch Library, and reported some of the many favorable comments she had heard on the opening day.

 

The Friend’s Executive Director next reported on the Friend’s recent Forum on the Future of Libraries held on July 8th. Ms. Bero described the distinguished panelists, including Commissioner Gomez, who had participated and discussed some of the interesting points that were raised during the presentations and following discussions.

The Friend’s Executive Director then informed the Library Commissioners concerning an exciting new poetry competition “Poets Eleven” that the Friend’s were developing in conjunction with San Francisco’s Poet Laureate Jack Hirschman and discussed details of how it was proposed to be conducted.

 

 

        Public comment on AGENDA ITEM #7 FRIEND’S OF THE LIBRARY REPORT

 

An anonymous member of the public recommended against donating to the Friends of the Library or accepting funding from the Friends. This person questioned how invitations to the Forum on the Future of Libraries had been issued and its purposes; and asked whether the Friend’s fundraising role followed the Library or if the Library followed the Friend’s fundraising. This individual commented that libraries had a special traditional purpose, whereas the Friend’s served their own purposes.

 

 

        Commission discussion of AGENDA ITEM #7 FRIEND’S OF THE LIBRARY REPORT

 

Commissioner Gomez reported that as a participant she, in contrast the public comment offered, found the Friend’s Forum on Libraries an effort to repair and heal the community and a coming together to promote dialog among a very diverse group of participants about what libraries meant to them. Commissioner Gomez noted that her quote had been chosen for inclusion in the Mission Bay Branch Library’s public art work prior to her having been appointed to the Public Library Commission.

 

Commissioner Bautista applauded the extraordinary work that the dedicated volunteers of the Friends of the Library provide in bringing communities together. Commissioner Bautista noted that Commissioners listen to critic’s public comments but that it was important the Commission acknowledge the contributions made by the Friends of the Library

 

Commissioner Chin suggested that rather than just pointlessly criticize what the Friends did, the Friend’s critics should make their own efforts to raise funds to support our libraries.
