Pink Note, The Novelette, James McNeill Whistler, 1894
Daily Thoughts 02/25/2014
I took some time enough this last week. This morning, we had a customer service training meeting. It was focused on improving how we worked with the public. Part of it was preparing for better community relations before we had a vote on our budget. It was a surprisingly pleasant experience. When I got back, I saw my picture on one of the posters in support of the library. I also did a video interview today for about seven minutes which is a fairly long cut for video. It was not too bad. I don't find myself to be that uncomfortable in front of a camera or video.
I returned my books and checked out two books that were waiting for me. What W.H. Auden Can Do For You by Alexander McCall Smith and a graphic novel, RASL by Jeff Smith who is famous for the comic Bone.
I read a copy of Library Journal, a Booklist, and a copy of the New York Review of Books. I put the book Annhilation by Jeff Vandermeer on hold. I am also looking forward to reading Wonderbook: The Illustrated Guide to Creating Imaginative Fiction by Jeff Vandermeer. I also put a hold on the book Words Will Break Cement The Passion of Pussy Riot by Masha Geshen on hold. They have been in the news quite often in Russia.
I made sure we had some extra copies of Having Our Say: The Delaney Sisters' First 100 Years for the nonfiction book club tomorrow at 1:00 p.m.
I spent a little bit of time checking the Facebook and Twitter for the library. I also did some shifting in the oversize books and checked the displays.
