Daily Thoughts 10/18/2015

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Part of Our Lives.  I am reading about the early Carnegie Libraries.  They followed a pattern with reading rooms, a community room, and book stacks.  They were designed around community activities like book discussions, lectures, and music concerts.  Then, like now there was a debate about what constitutes good literature.
