Daily Thoughts 10/29/2014
I checked the Twitter and Facebook this morning for the library. I also did some shifting in the 900s. We are ordering some more book ends.
I checked the displays and the gifts. I put together a display of some of the new art books. I also read a copy of the Publishers Weekly and Library Journal.
I checked out the book, How Google Works by Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg. My initial impression is that it looks like a public relations piece.
I printed up some flyers for programs as well. I also ordered a copy of Brothas Be, Yo Like George, Ain't that Funkin' Hard On You? by George Clinton and Ben Greenman.
I spent a few minutes looking through the Arts Westchester Directory.
I spent some time going over some things with the new part-time public computer person. We may have someone to help with the public computers in the morning as well soon.
There is a class tonight for Beginning Microsoft Powerpoint from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The poetry workshop is continuing. They are talking about doing a final class performance on November 19, 2014. We also have to work on a chapbook for the people in the class. One of the students showed me her book, The Summer of Yes by Karen Leahy. I have started reading it. It is an interesting book. Karen Leahy was a nun in a convent for 11 years, then chose to leave. The writing is very presentable and grammatical.
