Daily Thoughts 9/15/2010

I won a book from one of the exhibitors at the Brooklyn Book Festival, For Beginner Books  The book which I chose was Barack Obama for Beginners by Bob Neer.  It will be added to the libraries collection.

Today has been fairly busy.  We had an ordering meeting for the library this afternoon.  I put all of my orders in.  I also had the graphic novels club this afternoon which went well.  We are getting a steady small group of people who are attending.  We are having an author talk this evening as well. 

I also finished putting together the business resources list for the library.  There will be other resource lists that we will create as well.   We also did a bookmark of books on starting a business recently. There is going to be a business expo on the 22nd and 23rd of September sponsored by the city.  There is also a Business Resource list which we added to the Community Links on our website. We are having the Women's Enterprise Development Center do a presentation on starting a business tonight.  This is the third year that the Women's Enterprise Development Center  has been coming to our library.   Hopefully, this will strengthern our contacts with local businesses and businesses organizations.

Two books came in for me to look at, Clementine by Cherie Priest and the social media marketing book by Dan Zarella.

I have started reading Rework by Jason Fried and David Hansson.  I think it will take a while for me to think over what they are writing.
