Blind Homer Led by the Genius of Poetry, Edward Sheffield Bartholomew (1822–1858) 1851

Daily Thoughts 02/24/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I also finished reading In the Great Green Room The Brilliant and Bold Life of Margaret Wise Brown by Amy Gary.  It was a biography that showed a complicated life.  Margaret Wise Brown was a woman who loved animals, dogs, nature and hunting.  She wrote children's books but wanted to write for an adult audience.  I am quite fond of her books, The Runaway Bunny and Goodnight Moon.  I thought this was an excellent telling of life story with plenty of drama and conflict.  The story is as much a story about love and family as it is about writing.

I spent some time reading technology plans from Santa Cruz Public Library and Anchorage Public Library.  I was a page at Santa Cruz Public Library a long time ago.

I wrote a sample proposal for my Budget and Finance class for the CPLA.  I also spent some time working on my Management of Technology class.

Tech Soup has an RFP library on how to write proposals.

Study for the Astor Library, New York

Alexander Jackson Davis (American, New York 1803–1892 West Orange, New Jersey)

Daily Thoughts 02/23/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Managing Budgets and Finances A How to do it Manual for Libraries on the way to work.  I am reading about library audits.

I also read some more of In the Great Green Room.  I am reading about Margaret Wise Brown's relationship with Michael Strange, a woman poet.  There is also a bit on her house called the "Only House" which had a door to nowhere on the second floor.

I checked the gift books and the displays.

There is a lecture tonight at 6:00 p.m. on the similarities between Barack Obama and Frederick Douglass.

I read through two copies of Publishers Weekly today.

I am working on a heart health program for next week on Thursday.
