Daily Thoughts 02/04/2014
This morning, I finished reading Star Trek The Fall Peaceable Kingdoms by Dayton Ward. It is a comfortable formula which is fun to read sometimes. It read like a techno thriller in space this time. The formula seemed like they had modernized it a bit to more closely reflects trends in thriller writing.
This morning, I checked the displays and the gift books. A colleague is putting in a display for Pete Seeger who died recently. I have a program on February 6, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Linda Tarrant-Reid will be showing a slideshow based on her book, Discovering Black America.
I have a copy of the New York Times Book Review to read. I did an order an order this morning for bestsellers and patron requests. This included ordering several books for the fire department exam from the city.
New signage is being put in right now for the Fiction room and the New Arrivals section.
I checked out the book, The Ministry of Guidance Invites You Not to Stay An American Family In Iran by Hooman Majd.
The computer lab is open from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.. There are also two computer classes; a beginning Microsoft Word class from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and a Fundamentals of Computer Operations class from 6:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m.
