Daily Thoughts 9/22/2011
This morning I relaxed on the train and read the paper. I took a break from reading.
I updated the Twitter and Facebook account today, checked the gift books, and checked the displays. We also opened the computer lab for two hours between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. I helped some people with job applications in the computer lab. I also spent some more time on Lynda.com studying Microsoft Word 2007. This is the wordprocessing program which we have for our computers which are not connected to the internet.
Sometimes, you wonder about the articles in Library Journal. I was reading about robotic storage for books for academic libraries. I wonder if you go into the far future, if they will put librarians in cold storage and pull them out when they are needed to answer questions.
I put the new Craig Thompson graphic novel, Habibi on hold. I also put the graphic novel Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles: The Authorized Adaptation by Dennis Calero on hold. I checked out the book Studs Terkel A Life In Words by Tony Parker. I am reading it for the Biography Book Club.
The Westchester Library System Digital Media Catalog now supports the Kindle. Overdrive recently made an agreement to lend ebooks with the Kindle device.
