I also read a little more of Without Their Permission. Alex Ohanian is writing about Y Combinator which is a startup training school which helps entrepreneurs generate workable ideas. Y Combinator reminds us to "Make something people want."
I checked the libraries Twitter and Facebook this morning.
I also checked the new book displays.
We had a management meeting this morning. We discussed the library budget, weeding, and a few other issues.
I spent some time shifting books in the oversize collection. I also worked a bit more on the strategic plan for my department. It is a slow, steady process. It is not due immediately. I have to look over the Star Libraries article in Library Journal as well as some of the documentation on 21st century libraries.
I read some more of Without Their Permission. I am reading about crowdsourcing and crowdfunding both for nonprofits and businesses. Two of the organizations written about are Donors Choose and Kickstarter. I also read a little more of Running Book Discussion Groups. I am reading about author appearances and how to choose the right author to speak at a library.
I may be going to the Mount Vernon city budget hearings soon. I have gone every year for the last several years and it always has been informative and a bit challenging.
