Daily Thoughts 04/24/2015

On the way to work, I finished reading Around the World In 50 Years.  There is a positive message in this book about conservation and the destructiveness of war.  He also tells us how children are taking education very seriously as the only way out of poverty and that many of the Asian nations are willing to work much harder and for less than the people in the United States to get ahead.

I checked the libraries Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I spent some time writing up a few things which we need to do with our website.  Locally, I like the White Plains Public Library website and the Somers Library website.

I spent a little more time working on programming today.

On the way home from work, I started reading Start A Revolution Stop Acting Like A Library by Ben Bizzle with Maria Flora.   The book is about digital promotion.  The first chapter is on websites and the second chapter is on mobile.  Ben Bizzle argues that it is better to have a professional web developer build a website than an in house librarian.

It is confirmed that I am going to Book Expo America this year with a VIP pass.  This is a Library First Time Guide to BEA from Early Word.

I have been invited to a variety of events.

I watched The Soloist starring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr.  I am going to show it in May in honor National Mental Health Month.

I put the book, The Martian by Andy Weir on hold.
