Claude Raguet Hirst, The Bookworm's Table, circa 1890
Daily Thoughts 7/28/2011
I am reading The Successful Business Plan by Rhonda Abrams, 4th Edition. I usually read books on business in general, not specifics for plans. The book is quite detailed with lots of exercises.
This morning, I checked the displays and updated the Twitter account. There is going to be a reading from 1:30-4:30 p.m. in the community room for Kabiru Mohammed who has two books which he self-published Life's Passion, a book of poetry, and The Tragedy of Ethelia, a play. Some libraries don't encourage self-published books. We actually have some staff members who have self-published books. Also a number of the members of the Writers Networking Workshop have self-published their poetry books. James Fair the host for the Writers Networking Workshop at the library edited an anthology of local poets called Blood Beats In Four Square Miles of Mount Vernon, New York poets.
I am going to the Association of Community Based Artists of Westchester http://www.acbaw.org/ tonight on 128 South Fourth Avenue tonight representing the library. They are holding a Writers Networking Workshop there tonight from 6:00-8:00 p.m. I will be bringing over some flyers and other material from the library to the workshop to discuss. We had a Writers Networking Workshop at the library on July 21, 2011 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. It is important to reach out to local arts organizations.
I spent some time in the computer lab today helping patrons do very basic things.
