The Garden Reading, Mary Cassatt, 1898
Daily Thoughts 09/08/2015
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
I checked the gift books and the new books area. I did a little updating to the display for Latino Americans 500 Years of History and gave some flyers to a visiting librarian to distribute.
I spent some time working on the monthly report and the monthly statistics for August.
I checked out the book, The Innocents Abroad and Roughing It by Mark Twain from the Library of America series.
I read a copy of the New York Times Book Review.
I also spent some time working on the website to add some descriptive content for movies and audio.
I started reading The Innocents Abroad. It is about Mark Twain taking a cruise on a steamer all over the world. A lot of what he says would be considered very improper today. It reminds me a bit of Kurt Vonnegut's work.
