Daily Thoughts 10/29/2013

This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library. I also spent a little bit of time updating the Bookletters page for new adult fiction and adult nonfiction.

I also spent s little time bringing up some of the holiday books for display.

We have four new computers in cybercorner put in today. It should make things a little better. The computer lab was open from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. today. I put out copies of the new schedule for computer classes. There are two classes tonight, a Beginning Microsoft Word class from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and a Your Smartphone class from 6;45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m.. We have a new registration system to register people electronically for classes which is something new. I have to learn it.

I checked out the book, Banksy You Are an Acceptable Level of Threat And If You Were Not You Would Know About It which is a book of Banksy's street art. He is wandering New York right now and doing various things. http://www.banksyny.com/ This is another article from the New York Times-- Month Long Chase Around New York York City for Banksy's Street Art. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/29/nyregion/monthlong-chase-around-new-york-city-for-banksys-street-art.html?pagewanted=1&_r=0&smid=fb-nytimes I enjoyed reading the book and looking at the pictures. It had a very strong anti-establishment flair to it.
