Daily Thoughts 03/31/2014
I checked the library social media this morning. The trains were messy again this morning. There was a mechanical breakdown on a train in the tunnels so it took a while for me to get to work.
I spent some time shifting oversize books to a new location. We are replacing some oversize library shelving. I also placed an order for new books this afternoon. I also checked the displays and the gift books. We are waiting for some books to do a display of books on autism.
I spent a little time discussing computer troubleshooting with a colleague. Today has been a quiet day. This made things pleasant. It gave me a little time to think about the upcoming library vote.
On the way home, I read Michelle Obama An American Story by David Colbert. This book is a very clean, straightforward story. It reads like a campaign piece for the 2008 elections. There were a few interesting things that were in the book like Michelle Obama's Gullah heritage and her going to a magnet school in Chicago designed to increase diversity and opportunity. Michelle Obama's schooling reminded me a little bit of Sonia Sotomayor's description of her schooling. But, mostly it was a very positive story of a successful, focused woman.
