Daily Thoughts 03/20/2015
I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.
On the way to work, I read some of I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou. I am finding Maya Angelou's prose writing to be even better than her poetry. It is captivating.
I checked the book, The Mechanical out after reading this review from NPR. The Mechanical Will Make Your Clockwork Pulse Pound.
I checked the gifts and the displays this morning. I also rearranged the computer classes a little bit. We are going to be doing a Fundamentals of Computers and a Beginning Microsoft Word Class on Monday instead of an Online Job Search class. More people are interested in learning the basics of computers.
I also looked through the DC Entertainment Graphic Novels Essentials and Chronology 2015 which was sent to me as a paper copy. It is free.
I spent some time preparing for a program tomorrow. I also sent the outline for a flyer to our graphic designer.
I talked with someone about career services.
I also spent a little time breaking up the list of items that have not gone out in the last five years and sending the pieces to different libraries.
There were a lot of small things that I needed to do today.
I read some more of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. I am planning on choosing one of Maya Angelou's books for the book club in April. April is National Poetry Month. The prose is beautiful, at times harsh, and a bit unforgiving.
How Robots and Algorithms are Taking Over by Sue Halpern-- A review of the Nicholas Carr book, The Glass Cage.
