Daily Thoughts 02/25/2015
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning. I also checked the library displays and gift books. I spent some time reading through some copies of Publishers Weekly, the New York Times Book Review, and Forecast. I checked the patron requests as well.
I worked a bit on the orders for next week. There is a new book called Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX and the Quest for a Fantastic Future by Ashlee Vance which is an authorized biography coming out on May 19, 2015 which I am hoping to read.
I also spent a little more time working on Bookletters. I created a list of Overdrive Advantage titles for Bookletters for our library. I also did a little work on scheduling programming.
I also am getting some feedback on how to improve our mailing list from other staff members.
The computer class list is ready for March. I have some sign up sheets which I need to add for Monday.
There was a Google Docs class tonight from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Computer Lab.
On the way home I read some more of Waking, Dreaming, Being. I am reading about dreaming. There is quite a bit about the hypnagogic state between waking and dreaming as well as lucid dreaming. Evan Thompson cites Jean Paul Sartre's book, The Imaginary.
