Woman Reading in a Cashmere Shawl, John Singer Sargent, 1909

Daily Thoughts 07/31/2014

I checked the Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I checked the displays and the gifts.  I also did  a bit more work with the planned library survey.

I have to do a little bit of work with the oversize books today.  I spent some time talking to a colleague about training.

I found out that in addition to Stan Lee being the honorary chair of National Library Card Sign Up Month in September, the theme for banned books week on September 21-27 is graphic novels.

I put the book, Born Reading Bringing Up Bookworms in the Digital Age by Jason Boog on hold.  Jason Boog wrote for Galleycat.  I also placed the young adult novel Marina by Carlos Ruiz Zafon on hold.  These were in the August edition of Bookpages which I put out today for patrons to look through.

I put in an interlibrary loan request for Customer Based Collection Development by Karl Bridges.  This is something that interests me considerably.
