Daily Thoughts 07/29/2014
This morning I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.
I checked the displays and the gift books. Someone bought a large chunk of paperbacks from the Friends of the Library Book Sale last night. I printed up some more flyers for programs. I also ordered a few books from the Smart Guide to the Bible nonfiction set.
The Brown Bag Nonfiction Book Club is today from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Trustees Room. We are reading The Island at the Center of the World by Russell Shorto. There is a Mystery Panel tonight from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. featuring Rosemary Harris, Jane Cleland, and Jonathan Santlofer in the Community Room. A colleague is leading the introduction. Hopefully it should turn out well. There are two books which were suggested for next time, Cod: A Biography of the Fish that Changed the World by Mark Kurlansky, and I Forgot to Remember: A Memoir of Amnesia by Su Meck.
We had the planning committee meeting today. We spent time discussing a survey for the library.
We also have some beginning computer classes, a Microsoft Word class from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and a Fundamentals of Computer Operations class from 6:35 p.m. to 7:35 p.m.
I have a copy of the Times Literary Supplement to read.
Libraries, already helping job seekers, get government recognition and funding.
