All library directors in Wood County will be meeting with Ohio Sen. Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green) next Monday. The topic of discussion is expected to be how Ohio's 2014 budget is likely to affect public library funding from the state.
Wood County District Public Library Director Michael Penrod told the library's Board of Trustees about the planned meeting during Tuesday's monthly board meeting.
During his director's report to the board, Penrod also discussed the issue of inappropriate behavior by library visitors and how transgressions are dealt with.
He described an incident that occurred during the last month at the Walbridge Branch Library involving a man in his mid-40s who was directing "inappropriate comments and caresses" toward a minor inside the library. "It happened once, then again, so we reported (the individual) to the police."
The adult has a long string of unrelated offenses on his record, including theft and menacing.

Putting Bowling Green State University on firmer financial footing will take campus-wide changes, consultants from Accenture reported to the campus community Wednesday.
About 700 faculty, administrators, staff and students gathered in the student union ballroom to hear the report that promises the university net savings up  to $85 million over five years through dozens of changes.
David Metnick, a managing director, said that the recommendations were developed through meetings with more than 50 campus "leaders, academic leadership, administrative staff, classified staff and students."
The company was paid $500,000.
President Mary Ellen Mazey said the university will now take over studying and implementing the recommendations. She promised to convene working groups to study the recommendations in January.
"I'm very optimistic as long as everyone works with us... we can implement every one of the recommendations," she said.

The Center for Innovative Food Technology (CIFT) has a foundation of focusing on things local.
Many of their efforts were highlighted on Wednesday as Rebecca Singer, vice president and director of agricultural programs, led a meeting which was primarily for growers and processors at the Agricultural Incubator Foundation near Haskins.
In addition to the various speakers, those in attendance received a tour of the accompanying Northwest Ohio Cooperative Kitchen (NOCK). The tour included the observation of one of the newest additions, a machine which automatically peels, cores and slices apples. It is located in the room used for blanching and freezing food products.
CIFT staff were working to process and freeze two crates of apples for the Seagate Food Bank which services clients in 18 Northwest Ohio counties including Wood. Because of the volume of apples being processed, some employees were also manually readying the apples to be frozen.

PERRYSBURG - Officials remain optimistic about bringing Costco to the city despite recent delays to the approval process.
A final site plan expected from Costco was not received by city officials, and a public hearing for a special use permit set for Tuesday has been canceled.
City Administrator Bridgette Kabat said plans remain on track, but the company opted to delay with the matter of a gas line underneath the planned location still to be resolved with the utility company.
"As far as we know, they are still very interested," Kabat said of Costco. "I think they're hopeful, (and) cautiously optimistic. It sounds like they have every intention of moving forward with the project."
A new date has not been set for the public meeting on the special approval use.
