Daily Thoughts 6/15/2009
I spent some time this morning looking at the Black Expressions Book Club at the New Arrivals section. It lists a lot of popular new African American fiction. Black Expressions describes a lot of different categories of African American fiction. http://www.blackexpressions.com/ecom/pages/nm/browse/subGenre.jsp?cat2=3788929&cat1=&browse=
I spent some time today weeding the oversize books. I was in the photography section. It was interesting looking at all the different artists.
I also spent some time discussing programming. We are going to have a program on minority business, a financial literacy program, and a program on writing wills. What I am really looking forward to is a program on writing poetry in August.
I also had a chance to look at Titlesource 3 from Baker and Taylor today which is kind of interesting to look at. It has a lot of features which we can use to make our ordering easier.
A lot of people are coming in to use the computers at our library. There is a wait of over an hour for using the cybercorner most of the time. The new books section is right across from cybercorner so people often read while they are waiting or checkout books and other media.
