Daily Thoughts 04/01/2014

This morning, I relaxed on the train to work.  When I got to work, I checked the flyers, checked the gift books and the displays.  I also had a chance to read a few copies of Library Journal.  It has been hectic lately.  Jules Feiffer, the cartoonist, has a graphic novel, called Kill My Mother coming out in August 2014.

I spent some time this morning working on a grant for Arts Westchester with a colleague.  We were looking at the requirements for the grant, looking over a previous application which succeeded for a grant, and getting demographic data. 

We also discussed the upcoming summer reading program.  We are working on a book to film series where we read a book, watch the film, then compare the two.  The theme for summer reading this year is Literary Elements.

We have a plan to expand the computer classes in May and June.  Hopefully, it should work out.

The front doors on the first avenue side of the building are being replaced. 

The periodicals department is displaying the magazine Poetry and the magazine, Poets and Writers in the entryway.  April is National Poetry Month.

A bit more on the library campaign for the vote.
