Daily Thoughts 10/7/2011
Today has been a quiet steady day. I checked the Twitter and Facebook account, and looked over the displays. I also selected some pictures of the library for a display; mainly of the bookmobile and the rotunda.
I also did some minor edits to the website. I am learning a bit more about how the library website works. I have a lot more to learn. I finished taking Microsoft Word 2007 from Lynda.com. I think the video instruction is excellent. I am still taking the class on Drupal 7.
This afternoon, I spent some time talking to the computer instructor to see if we could do an extra hour of instruction for the computer lab.
A story on the Mount Vernon Writers Network from the Mount Vernon Inquirer . http://www.mvinquirer.com/mount_vernon_writers.htm
The New York State Library has a new document called Creating The Future: A 2020 Vision and Plan For Library Service in New York. http://www.nysl.nysed.gov/libdev/adviscns/rac/creating.pdf There is a lot in here which can significantly change how libraries are run.
