Minutes, Working mundane things into the

A fun exercise for your work meetings is to see who can work the most mundane item into the official minutes of the meeting. Some examples:
  • Periodicals will be purchasing a new pencil sharpener for public use.
  • Interlibrary Loan reported adding a second address line to the ILL forms.
  • Bathroom lights should be turned off each night at closing.
  • The Reference Department staff should turn off computer monitors each evening, but leave the PCs on for virus software updates.
  • All library staff were reminded to refill ice trays in the staff lounge.
This game will not only increase your appreciation of library minutiae, but also make people read the minutes.
