Daily Thoughts 10/16/2014

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, 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.
