Girl Reading, Edward Simmons, 1893

Daily Thoughts 04/20/2015

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.  We are working on changing the pattern of how we post things.

I read some of Curiosity by Alberto Manguel.  I am reading about Dante and Inferno.  Alberto Manguel is describing Dante talking to Virgil and Ulysses.

I checked the gift books and the flyers this morning.  I also handed out some paper surveys to the public.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.  I spent some time looking at bibliographies of bibliotherapy books.

The Westchester Library Association has a set of bibliographies for helping children with bibliotherapy.
Gill Library Bibliotherapy List

Grieving List White Plains Public  Library

Bibliotherapy Lists from the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh

We are going to be showing The Soloist on May 4 and having a panel discussion about the movie between 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m..

I spent some time reading the latest New York Times Book Review and started working on my order for new books for next week.
