Daily Thoughts 09/30/2015
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook today.
I also spent some time checking the displays and the gift books. I am finalizing the design of the brochure for Latino films. I picked out some more films to display in the display cases. I also picked out a few horror books and graphic novels in preparation for a display for Halloween.
I checked out the film Bless Me Ultima to watch. We are showing it on October 13 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the community room.
I read through several copies of Publishers Weekly, Booklist, Library Journal, and the latest copy of the October Baker and Taylor Forecast. I placed a hold on Part of Our Lives: A People's History of the American Public Library by Wayne A. Wiegand. I also placed a hold on Windfall: The Booming Business of Global Warming by McKenzie Funk. It is about how people make money off of disaster.
I spent some time discussing programming and scheduling with colleagues.
