Daily Thoughts 04/29/2014

On the way to work, I read some more of Memories, Dreams, Reflections.  Jung is writing about his dreams and unconscious thoughts.  There is Egyptian, Greek, and Gnostic Symbolism.  He also describes archetypes.  I like the Greek maxim which he uses about writing journals and self reflective writing.  "Give away all that thou hast, then shalt thou receive."

I checked the libraries Facebook and Twitter this morning.  I also checked the displays and the gift books.

The vote on the library budget is on May 6, 2014 from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the community room.  There is an Information Session on April 30, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. where people can meet the candidates for the Mount Vernon Public Library Board of Trustees.

I have a program today.  The Brown Bag Nonfiction Book Club is meeting at 1:00 p.m. in the Trustees room.  We discussed Michelle Obama.

This afternoon the computer lab was open from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  We also have two computer classes tonight, 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..

I am reading Opportunity Knocking Lessons from Business Leaders by Lori Ann LaRocco.  I also checked out The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup.

The Mount Vernon Public Library Friends of the Library Book and Bake Sale is on Friday and Saturday, May 2 and May 3, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. this weekend.

I started reading on Opportunity Knocking.  It is a business book which is inspirational.  The book is about how to create a pyramid towards success.  The difference in this book is that the author, Lori Ann LaRocco is a business journlist and has a different style focusing on peoples lives, showing how they acted, and documenting how they are successful.  This is very different from most business administration books.  It is very practical in its orientation.

The board of elections is in the community room tonight.

I am looking at http://www.libraryedge.org
