New green library building in Darien Connecticut.
I put The Breath of God by Harry Turtledove on hold. It is a fantasy novel. I like Harry Turtledove's fantasy much better than his alternate history novels.
On the train in to work, I started reading The Ghost In Love by Jonathan Carroll. Lots of fun; a talking dog, a ghost that cooks, a love affair gone bad, cosmic mishaps, and a deranged homeless man make for an interesting story.
Today has been a day to do a lot more weeding of the social science books. I may be done a little bit faster than I expected. I have a library aide helping me with the shifting right now, so that should speed up the process considerably.
The career counselor who comes in once a week, gave me a list of recommended titles to order for our job information center. I also use the Chief Newspaper which is the civil service newspaper for Manhattan, and the county job listings to order civil service test books.
I also went to the Council of Community Services meetings at noon which was helpful. We may have some more contacts to do events with very soon.
Right now I am also looking at two vendors for ebooks, YBP Library Services a service of Baker and Taylor books and Overdrive. I am looking at getting a small package of ebooks, about 500 of them, with three special sections, bestsellers, job books, and computer books. I have to examine the two services a little bit more. I realize that there is a burst of growth with the Kindle platform and the Sony Ereader platform.
