Daily Thoughts 10/16/2014
I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.
I started reading Terry Pratchett, A Slip of the Keyboard. It is a set of essays many of them about the writing life. So far, I have read about book signings, why he writes, wordprocessors, and science fiction conventions.
I checked the gift books and the displays. I also did some shifting of the 900s. I spent some time preparing for programs. There is a reception tonight for the exhibit Art of Our Land in the Rotunda Gallery from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
I am working with Webucator, http://webucator.com on getting free online classes for our library. We are putting together a press release.
The book, The Accidental Library Marketer by Kathy Dempsey came in for me to read. I sent out a few flyers to our mailing list.
I am working on a flyer for an online job search workshop series that would be done on Mondays in the computer lab.
