Daily Thoughts 01/18/2014
This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library. I also checked the displays and the gift books. I did a little weeding in the oversize books as well.
One of our tech people showed me the demonstration model for the 8750 public access catalog today.
It looks a little bit like this. http://whiteplainslibrary.org/2012/11/our-new-low-cost-experimental-online-catalog-pc/
I spent a little time talking with colleagues about the website and how we plan to work on it. I am going to be spending a little time with the children's department and the teen department next week on this.
The computer lab was open from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. today for a computer class in Spanish.
I ordered some pamphlets and bookmarks from http://consumer.gov for consumer protection information.
