Daily Thoughts 08/22/2013
Last night, I read some of Discovering Vintage New York: A Guide to the City's Timeless Shops, Bars, Delis, & More by Mitch Broder. It was interesting. It mentioned many classic places in New York. I am quite fond of a few of them including The Donut Pub and the Strand Bookstore.
I am going to read Taking Your Kindle Fire to the Max by Mark Rollins. We spent some time discussing electronic resources today. We are planning to have some computer classes for seniors and to make some changes to our current computer class schedule and lab arrangement. A book that was suggested for basic computer teaching is Is This Thing On A Computer Handbook for Late Bloomers, Technophobes, and the Kicking and Screaming by Abby Stokes. We are also getting Overdrive Advantage so we can have a local collection of ebooks which should be very nice.
I checked the displays and the social media for the library today. We have computer classes tonight: Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Powerpoint. We also have the End of Summer Reading Literary Tea for Adults today which I hope goes well. It is in the community room. The Sylvia Mims and Patti-Preiss-Harris Jazz Duo is singing tonight. We are also giving people who participated in the Adult Summer Reading Club a book to choose, a pad and pen, and a tote bag with our logo on it. The duo is very good.
