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 http://www.nybooks.com/ in addition to Library Journal, Booklist and Publishers Weekly. http://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/biography-memoir/
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.
