Daily Thoughts 10/6/2011
Today has been a steady day. I checked the gift books today, made sure the displays were in order and started planning for a few programs. Someone asked about http://www.booksalefinder.com/ which lists all the different library booksales.
I am putting together a display of old pictures of the library and working on setting up another session for the computer class during the week. There seems to be a lot of demand for computer training.
I spent some more time practicing on Lynda.com, I finished the course on Indesign CS5. I think I still have quite a ways to go. It was a good introduction. I am almost finished with taking Microsoft Word 2007 on Lynda.com.
We opened the Computer Lab today in the afternoon. There are quite a few people who have come in to practice what they learned in the computer class in the lab. A lot of them are practicing typing.
I put the book Without A Net: Librarians Bridging the Digital Divide by Jessamyn West on request through interlibrary loan. It should be quite interesting.
I am reading Every Thing On it poems and drawings by Shel Silverstein. It should be both entertaining and lighthearted. The book reminded me a bit of The Giving Tree. The collection was posthumous so it had a lot of poems that were very different than his other books. Some had a fairytale quality to them which I liked.
Tomorrow we will be getting a demonstration of the new Sony tablet computer. I am looking forward to it.
