Befween 45 and 50 people braved The snow on February 11Th To aTTend
The LS0 ValenTine's Day Tea. Special Thanks go To The Social CommiTTee,
chaired by Barbara Randolph, for doing such a Terrific job on such shorT
nofice. She was ably assisfed by The oTher members of The Social
Commiffee, Linda Raines, Teresa Sfarns, PaTTy Hornbeck, Mary Geyer,
Jeanne Trimble and Hank Harken, wiTh help from Phil Dare and Mary Welch.
Jean Robinson served as consulTanT and provided much needed Technical
assisfance when The coffee poT wenT on The blink. We were glad To see ‘
so many people. Thanks for coming and making The firsT evenf of 1983 a
l Many Thanks also To The folks who call To inform The LSO officers
of illnesses and deafhs ThaT affecf members of The library sfaff. We
are working on wriffen guidelines in order To respond To These
sifuafions. We will be draffing some procedures and disTribuTing copies

As you look over The 1982 LSO Treasurer's reporf, closely examine
The receipfs and expendifures. Dues covered only a porfion of expenses
lasf year. Fund—raising acfivifies involve The same people (or so iT
seems) nearly every Time. Some LS0 members have suggesfed ThaT dues be
increased,and fund—raising acTiviTies be decreased for 1984. (Dues will
remain af an unbelievably low $3 for 1983. You can pay The Treasurer,
Barbara Hale, GPD, King Soufh.) Do you remember when The Iasf increase
in dues occurred? (Answer nexT Time.)
The LSO officers decided To senT ouT a quesfionnaire To geT an idea
of whaT you all wanfed LS0 To do This year. Perry Brafcher prepared To

 The quesfions and Cecil Madison prinTed, addressed and disTribuTed The
quesfionnaire. We urge you To comp|eTe your copy and reTurn iT as soon
as possible To Perry Brafcher in SOLINET, King Norfh. This is YOUR
organizafion. LeT us know whaT you wanT To do or To parTicipaTe in.
LeT your voice be heard! (On The oTher hand, if you don'T wanT To do
anyThing, The officers will no doubT abscond The funds in The Treasury
and have a moderafely wild parTy some nighT aT STarThrower's.) _

 ° IV. Narrative Report
Il Membership month for LSO was March; 96 members signed up. On
‘ balance, we had a good year with the 'standard' events occurring
‘ at intervals which kept the organization in view and sustained
the membership's feeling of having joined a worthy group.
s In view of the employment situation of 1982, the focus of the
spring event was not concentrated primarily upon the welcoming
of newcomers to the library sytem. It was a chance for recog-
nizing deserving individuals as well as for informal interacting
of the staff in the various departments of King, the branches
and associate libraries.
The choice of location for this year's picnic was most auspicious
and well—timed-—before Kentucky's summer flies had reached their
population peak. The scenery was pleasant, the food delicious,
the beverages well—tempered, and the participants quite jolly.
The Christmas luncheon was again the highlight of the year. We
hope that more participants will consider joining LSO in l983.
, The food, served in surroundings of festive atmosphere, could not
‘ be topped. We were happy to entertain as guests a few retirees
~! of the library system.
_l Unfinished business is the purchase of a volley—ball set and the
‘ question whether LSO should sponsor the purchase of a microwave
oven for the staff lounge.
