Daily Thoughts 07/25/2012

This morning I did some more exercises in The Don't Sweat the Small Stuff Workbook.  I also updated the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the library.  In addition, I checked the gift books.  I have a copy of the New York Times Book Review to read.

The library has the computer lab open between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. today.  People are mainly printing up documents, doing job search, and writing resumes.

I put the book, Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed on hold.  She is an advice columnist for a website called The Rumpus.  I am not sure why I am requesting this book.  It was reviewed in the New York Times Book Review.  The review was entertaining.

I spent some time looking at the collection management sheet where we write down what patrons ask for.  There is a lot of crossover between the purchase alerts and latest bestsellers.  I also looked at the purchase alerts for items with lots of holds.

I still have to read the latest issue of Forecast from Baker and Taylor.  They often include titles that have not been reviewed in Library Journal, Booklist, or Publishers Weekly.
