Daily Thoughts 09/19/2012
I read a little bit more of Madrigal's Magic Keys to Spanish. I finished Chapter 29. I am getting past what I had learned previously in high school, so I might be going a little slower. I also read some more of Abundance. The authors are writing about education. The one laptop per child initiative is praised.
This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library. I also did my daily check on e-mail reference. I also spent some time looking at the monthly website statistics and the purchase alerts list for items that are on hold.
I am thinking a little bit about programming. Programming Librarian has a calendar of events. http://www.programminglibrarian.org/library/events-and-celebrations.html
I have the latest New York Times Book Reivew and Publishers Weekly to read.
The computer lab is open from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. today.
