Daily Thoughts 12/13/2014

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.

I read some more of Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy The Many Faces of Anonymous by Gabriella Coleman.  Gabriella Coleman wrote this as part of her academic requirement to publish.  She is a cultural antrhopologist focusing on modern culture.  The style is quite interesting.  There are many excerpts from internet relay chat conversations.  This means there is a lot of dialogue.  Also, in order for her to do this kind of work, she has to have regular contact with the people involved so that there is a lot of original research.  This makes the book more authoritative.

I checked the gifts and the displays this morning.  I also summarized my committee meeting from yesterday.  I sent some information for a flyer to our graphic designer.

The Mount Vernon Public Library is seeking a children's librarian part-time.
