I filed looseleafs in the Guide to Employment Law and Regulations this afternoon. I plan on replacing several missing copies of McKinney's Consolidated Laws of New York Annotated as well as a volume of the New York Code of Rules and Regulations. These two sets are some of the most used books in our law collection. We keep several different volumes of the set behind the reference desk and hold identification while they are being used. This is to prevent theft. McKinney's is quite expensive at $135 per volume currently.
This month is African American History Month. There was a reading this last Saturday for the Big Read. People took turns reading from Ernest J. Gaines A Lesson Before Dying. We also just put up a display for the Negro Leagues Baseball. It is in front of our desk. This coming Saturday we are doing a An African American Read In Chain for Lorraine Hansberry, A Raisin In The Sun
Tomorrow, I am putting together a display for Lincoln's Birthday on February 12. A patron is donating a mystery about the assassination of Lincoln for the display.
We have fourteen people in our community room who are attending the first part of a series of four part series on starting a business.
