The second of four designs for the reverse of the 2009 Lincoln cent in celebration of the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth

Daily Thoughts 10/10/2012

I spent a little time looking at the IMLS -- Institute of Museum and Library Services website as well as the New York State Library website this morning.  I also looked at the Westchester Databook for 2010.

The National Book Awards are being announced today.  I checked the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the library.

I also picked out some nonfiction books on vampires, lycanthropes, mothman, yetis, and other cryptozoological and mythical beasts for a display.

This afternoon, I spent some time in the computer lab.  The lab was open from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. today.

 I also put in an order for nonfiction books focused on a mix of subjects; popular nonfiction, history, biography, and careers.  I looked at Kirkus Reviews Online as well as Earlyword and the New York Review of Books in addition to Library Journal, Booklist and Publishers Weekly.

Long Live Paper
I like to think we will still have children's picture books and coffee table books in the future.  These seem to be a lot less replaceable than black and white text.
