The Gden Reading - Mary Cassatt

 The Garden Reading, Mary Cassatt, 1898

Daily Thoughts 11/24/2015

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

One of the things I am noticing while reading Creating a Learning Society is that there are examples of giving abstracts ideas like society and the economy characteristics like learning and growing.  It reminds me of the idea of the corporation as a legal person.  I am beginning to understand how this can happen.

I read some more of Creating a Learning Society on the way to work.  I am reading about how different groups have different learning capacities.  Joseph Stiglitz describes how it is more important to learn how to learn that is to memorize things by rote.

We had a staff meeting this morning where we discussed a report by Alan and Leslie Burger of Library Development Solutions written in September of 2015.  It is a first step towards a long term strategic goal.

The Crochet Class was today from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m..  We have two computer classes tonight.  A Fundamentals of Computers class and a Beginning Microsoft Word class.
