Three Women at the Table by the Lamp, August Macke, 1912

Daily Thoughts 08/23/2013
This morning, I read some more of Taking Your Kindle Fire to the Max. I am noticing that there are two types of tablets, tablets that focus on content like the Nook and the Kindle Fire which are designed for books, films, music, and movies mainly, and more general tablets focused on apps like the Google Nexus 7 and the iPad.

This morning, I checked the social media for the library and the displays. I also read the latest copy of Book Page. I picked up an advanced reading copy of Night Film by Marisha Pessl to read while I was going through the advanced reading copies in the staff room.

We had a management meeting this morning. They are going to be replacing some of the shelving. They are also planning on doing more weeding. We may be working with more electronic materials as well.

The clerical staff have brought up all the large print books from the mezzanine to be interfiled with the regular collection. We are also adding two more computers to the computer lab and expanding the number of computer classes.

Today has been a very busy day.  We had a visit from the 3M Cloud Library today to show their ebook platform.  It was interesting.  We watched a presentation in the trustees room.  It was very polished.

I also spent a very small amount of time weeding.  I try and do a little bit each day.
