Edward Poynter, A Day Dream, 1863
Daily Thoughts 02/26/2015

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.  I also checked the displays and the gift books.  Next month is Women's History Month.

I spent some time looking at a grant for Latino culture from the American Library Association.

Today there was an Ipod and Ipad class from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

We have a new set of Career, Business, and Job E-books from the Gale Virtual Reference Library.

We are working on some other databases to add to the library website.  We are adding Flipster which is a magazine service to the website.

The Book Club met from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. to discuss the book Behind The Dream The Making of the Speech That Transformed the Nation by Clarence B. Jones.  It was an interesting discussion. There was some discussion of Martin Luther King's role as a Baptist minister. Th next book being discussed will be The Second Machine Age, Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies by Erik Brynjolffson and Andrew McAfee.   

On the way home, I read some more of Waking, Dreaming, Being.  It was interesting seeing some material on Sigmund Freud and Friedrich Nietzsche's views on dreams.  Right now, I am reading about hallucinations and the imagination in dreams.
