Daily Thoughts 01/23/2014
It is very cold outside right now. I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning. I also checked the displays and the gift books. Sometimes, the cold affects who can come to programs. One of our older patrons asked me to reschedule the book club for next week, she could not come because of the icy streets.
I did a bit of weeding in the oversize books. I also assigned a colleague to do some weeding in the adult biography section. I told a few more people about a photo shoot of library supporters on January 29 and January 30.
I read through an issue of the New York Times Book Review and Publishers Weekly. I am looking forward to reading Jeff Vandermeer's book Annhilation.
I spent some time updating the Bookletters Widget on the library website for recommended books.
We had the computer lab open from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. today. There is also a computer class tonight for Beginning Internet in the computer lab from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m..
I spent a little time looking over the adult graphic novel section.
