Daily Thoughts 03/03/2012
This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the library. There is a Denzel Washington film screening. The first show is Glory. It is happening right now in the community room.
I also did some weeding this morning in the paperbacks and checked the gift books and the displays. I check these every morning so things stay in order. We have quite a few gift books to add.
The oversize books continue to be shifted. It makes things look much nicer.
I am going to the March 9, 2012 General Assembly 6:00 p.m. Introduction to the Startup Community. It should be interesting. Things happen. I'll probably also go to a New York Tech Meetup next month, because I missed it this month. These things happen repeatedly.
I also spent some time looking over books to order. I still have to go through the March Baker and Taylor Forecast.
I did a bit of updating to my selected links page. I was reminded of a few interesting sites like Library As Incubator http://www.libraryasincubatorproject.org/ which is how libraries incubate the arts. There is also NY Libraries Share which is a smaller networking group on Facebook, http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/108255962538466/
This evening, I put the book Change by design : how design thinking transforms organizations and inspires innovation by Tim Brown on hold.
Creating the Public Library of the Future by Michael Posner
