A Man Seated At A Table Covered With Books, Rembrandt, 1636

Daily Thoughts 12/23/2013

This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library. I also downloaded a report, Ebook Usage in U.S. Public Libraries from Library Journal online. It should be informative.

I am going to the City Council Meeting in Mount Vernon, New York today, even though I have a day off. I have done this for more than five years. I think the budget will be discussed today which includes the library budget. If you support the library please come. I have become a little more familiar with city government because of this.

I am off tomorrow and the next day, for Christmas Eve and Christmas day which should be relaxing. I always try and relax during the holidays.

I spent some more time reading Strategy A History. I am reading about concepts of strategy in the bible and early Greek history and myth. A context for David and Goliath, Odysseuss, and the Trojan horse is given. Right now, I am reading about Thucydides and the Pelopponesian war.
