Daily Thoughts 06/26/2014
This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.
On the way to work, I read some more of Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way. Bruce Rosenstein mentioned some of the awareness and focus activities which Peter Drucker did like The Relaxation Response which is a book by Herbert Benson, mindfulness, and the philosophy of self actualization. He also talked about the concept of continuous learning. I finished doing the worksheet which went with the seminar. It had a few articles on it.

I spent some time working on scheduling this afternoon. I also worked on Evanced with some colleagues to set up the Adult Summer Reading Page. I proctored an exam from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.. I read a number of copies of Publishers Weekly while the student did the exam.
I put the book, The zero marginal cost society : the internet of things, the collaborative commons, and the eclipse of capitalism by Jeremy Rifkin on hold which looks like a bit of techno utopianism.
There is a play tonight called Sweet Lemonade in the rotunda gallery from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.. It is loosely related to the play Annie. There is also a computer class tonight for Android Tablets from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the computer lab.
The post office is at the library to register people for Passports this Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
