Daily Thoughts 3/24/2011 (webinar, library photographs)

Wonder Book For Girls & Boys by Nathaniel Hawthorne, 1892,  Illustrated by Walter Crane

Daily Thoughts 3/24/2011

I finished reading The Physics of the Future by Michio Kaku.  It has a very positive feel to it.  The author reminds us to not let go of the ability to constantly invent new technology and research new science, it is extremely important for our future.
We had a webinar this morning in the computer lab, AARP's Living Well in Westchester Webinar Series. It was focusing on affordable housing and assisted living for seniors.

Today has been steady.  I made some calls to schedule workshops on different subjects during the next several months including wills, foreclosure, and energy efficiency, all subjects which I think there might be some interest in.

I also spent some more time looking at different photographs of the library.  In the early 1900s we had a fireplace in the childrens room which is a bit different.  There is even an advertisement to buy a brick for the fireplace to support the library.  We also have pictures of a doll case display from 1970 which is intriguing.
