The Good Book, Frederico Zandomoneghi, 1897

Daily Thoughts 09/10/2013

I am reading Devil In The Grove: Thurgood Marshall, the Groveland Boys, and the Dawn of a New America by Gilbert King. This book is revelatory in its content. It shows people at their absolute worst. The book won the Pulitzer Prize. One of our library patrons recommended it.

This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library. I also checked the displays. September 15 through October 15 is Hispanic Heritage month. We are also having an ESOL class at the library starting on September 23, 2013 in the mornings, Monday through Thursday.

I had a little bit of time to do some more weeding in the oversize books.  I try and do these kind of things consistently.

 There is a business class tonight and tomorrow night, WEDC (Women's Enterprise Development Center) First Steps program which is about business planning from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  We have a new screen in the community room and a new projector which makes doing programming much easier.

Marketing Will Replace Editorial as the Driving Force Behind Publishing Houses http://www.idealog.com/blog/marketing-will-replace-editorial-driving-force-behind-publishing-houses/

I like to think there is some integrity in editing, much more so than marketing which is about sales. Forgoing quality for the sake of sales is bothersome.
