Daily Thoughts 09/05/2013
I finished reading Night Film last night. I rather liked how Marissa Pessl creates rational arguments for the inexplicable at the end of the book. It is very entertaining. I enjoyed reading the book.
This morning, I checked the displays and updated the Facebook and Twitter for the library. We are having our first Computer Basics for Seniors Class this morning from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. A colleague is teaching it. I hired a computer lab assistant yesterday. I think it will work well.
I have been reading through review journals. There is a new book called Kansas City Lightning: the Rise and Times of Charlie Parker by Stanley Crouch. I think it should be very interesting reading.
I put the book, The Thicket by Joe R. Lansdale on hold. I like Joe Lansdale. This should be interesting because it is a western set in the turn of the twentieth century oil boom.
The Computer Lab is open from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. today. There is also a session for learning Microsoft Excel tonight.
In addition, there is a Special Meeting of the Mount Vernon Public Library Board of Trustees at 6:30 p.m. in the Trustees room.
Things have been very busy lately.
