Daily Thoughts 03/13/2015

Leopold von Kalckreuth, La Comtesse Marie, 1888
Daily Thoughts 03/13/2015

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.  I also checked the displays and the gift books.

I read some The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up the Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo.  It has a charming quirkiness to it with its touches of a personal story focused on design and organizing things and its feminine touches focusing on things like the right dresses, aromatherpay, yoga, and meditative thoughts of where you might put your socks.  It is also a little funny.  The book was on the New York Times Bestseller List.

We had a management meeting this morning where we discussed a variety of issues.  This includes things like the new phone system and a fax machine for the public.  There was also a lot on new electronic magazines sources like Zinio and Flipster which we now have.  We also discussed some databases like the ABC-CLIO African American Experience database.  In addition, there are plans for some maker spaces for activities like sewing, crochet, and other activities.

I spent some time arranging for a poetry program on April 16 and April 30, 2015 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the community room.

I also may be a doing a little work with the cybercorner.

On the way home, I read some more of The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up.  I am reading about the best way to fold socks.  It is completely inane and at the same time very calming reading.
