Daily Thoughts 9/26/2011
Today has been a quiet, steady day. I checked the displays and updated the Twitter and Facebook accounts. There are quite a few programs coming up in the next week. There is a book signing on
September 30, 2011 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. for the book Who Stole Public Schools From the Public by Claudia Edward.
I spent some more time studying Microsoft Word 2007 on Lynda.com. We have been getting a lot more requests for help with word processing from library patrons lately, especially for how to do printing and layout.
I also did some weeding in the graphic novels section.
The book, Swerve How The World Became Modern by Stephen Greenblatt came in for me to read.
Also, Goliath which is the final book in the Leviathan young adult steampunk trilogy by Scott Westerfeld came in to read.
I read some of Goliath on the way home.One of the caracters is Nikola Tesla which is a bit different.
I have also spent some time thinking about magazines and newspapers on ereaders. They are inexpensive and may be something worth getting for the Sony E-readers.
