Daily Thoughts 08/13/2012
This weekend I have been slowly reading a variety of books. I am reading Full Body Burden Growing Up In The Shadow of Rocky Flats by Kristen Iversen. This is a combination of a memoir of growing up and an account of Rocky Flats. Rocky Flats was a secret facility where they made the nuclear bomb triggers during the cold war. The descriptions of the facility are both fascinating and scary. There is an account of a fire inside the secret facility which is intense. There are also accounts of radiation leakage and environmental damage. I also read some of Berlitz Essential Spanish. I decided to learn some Spanish. I am also reading See It and Say It in Spanish by Margarita Madrigal. There are lots of simple line drawings.
This morning, I checked the Facebook and Twitter pages for the library. I also checked the reference email. We occassionally get recommendations to purchase items in this email. I checked the gifts and the displays as well. I also did a little bit of wrap up work on the Annual Adult Summer Reading Contest.
I did a little bit of inventory in the mezzanine. I also placed a few orders, mainly books which patrons had requested.
