The Morning News, William Merritt Chase, 1886
Daily Thoughts 05/08/2015
I checked the library Twitter and Facbeook this morning. Today is the Westchester Library Association conference. I am passing on this. It is also the Friends of the Library Book and Bake Sale from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. I will get a cup of coffee, a cookie, and a book this morning to support the friends.
I read some more of Sapiens on the way to work. I am reading about how interconnection between different cultures is increasing historically. Now, more than ever people are able to travel to different places around the world and share a dialog with each other.
I went to the Friends of the Mount Vernon Public Library Book and Bake Sale and bought a copy of Sisters by Raina Telgemeier which is a young adult graphic novel. I also bought some brownies and a cup of coffee.
I compiled the statistics for last month and sent them in.
I did some work with the computer books.
I also looked at the June Releases Library Reads. http://libraryreads.org
I spent some more time looking at Book Expo America. There are two more events on Friday which I hope to go to. There is the AAP Annual Librarians Book Buzz, Part II from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and there is The Annual Librarian’s Shout and Share from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.. These are excellent ways to learn about books. Both events are in room 1E14.
