Information Services Assistant and Teen Specialist Hillary Pacheco gave a report on the summer learning program when the Jackson County Public Library board of trustees met Monday at the Seymour Library.

The Oceans of Possibilities summer learning program is online at and in the Seymour, Crothersville and Medora libraries and on the Discovery Bus through Aug. 1.

After Pacheco’s report, the board approved increasing salaries immediately for all staff by $1 to $3.50 per hour for a beginning pay of $15 per hour for new desk assistants.

The board also approved personnel changes, revisions to the personnel policy, an increase in salaries of 3% for 2023 budgetary purposes and after-hours teen programs on Oct. 14 in Crothersville and Oct. 28 in Seymour.
