Daily Thoughts 10/15/2013
This morning, I read some more of What Science, Mathematics, and Logic Cannot Tell Us I am learning about set theory and the concept of infinity. I don't understand most of the diagrams, but they are interesting to look at. This is no different for me than when I look at financial figures. I spent a little more time on the way home reading about unsolvable problems in mathematics. It gives me a little comfort that we will never know everything.
I spent some time this morning checking the Twitter and Facebook for the library. I also checked the displays and did a little shifting in the oversize books.
I spent a bit of time this morning looking at patron requests. There were several requests for books on Autocad and Autodesk. we have a number of patrons that do computer work.
I also did a little more ordering for the adult books.
This afternoon, I spent a little time working with the children's room on ordering for Overdrive Advantage.
The library had a tablet class in the computer lab this evening as well as a basic email class.
