Daily Thoughts 03/07/2014

I finished reading Learning to Breathe this morning on the way to work.  The final section is on the acceptance of death.  It is sometimes hard to write about religious or spiritual books because it is much like politics.  There is often an idea that librarians are part of a public institution which makes them not partisan during their working hours.  The book becomes even more mixed pulling from Judaism, more varieties of buddhism (zen, Vietnamese, and Tibetan), Ayurveda, a bit of the new age, and cognitive psychology.  The author, Priscilla Warner does achieve some peace of mind through meditation in the end which is what she was hoping for.

This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.  I also checked the displays.  This month is Women's History month.  The Friends of the Mount Vernon Public Library Book and Bake Sale is on May 2 and May 3 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

I spent a little time taking pictures of the computer lab, the cybercorner, and the children's computer area.

I am showing the different databases and online learning resources from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the computer lab.

I spent a little more time weeding in the oversize books.
