Portrait of Art Dealer Manfred Shames, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, 1925-1932

Daily Thoughts 10/16/2013

On the way to work, I read some more of The Outer Limits of Reason. I read about the butterfly effect and chaos theory which demonstrates why it is very hard to predict the weather accurately. I like that the world is not completely predictable, but it is understandable.

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.

I also spent a bit of time checking on flyers for programs. We are showing the film Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World which we got as part of the Bridging Cultures grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 17, 2013. After the film there will be a discussion with a local Imam, Abdul Azeez. It should be interesting.

The Digital Shift Reinventing Libraries is Today on October 16, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

I enjoyed watching:
