The Second Jungle Book, Rudyard Kipling, 1911

Daily Thoughts 01/29/2016

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.

I also checked the gift books and the displays.

I read a copy of the Times Literary Supplement and the New York Review of Books.  I also read through several copies of Booklist.

I  put in an order for a few books on African history.  February is Black History Month.  I also spent some time in the afternoon working on the displays focusing on civil rights, African history, and African American history.

I also spent some time talking to Literacy Solutions New York, Inc. which is at Yonkers Public Library.

We are planning on opening our computer lab for longer hours.  10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, and 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Thursday.

I read some more of On Her Own Ground.  I am reading the story about how Madam C.J. Walker started losing her hair, then used a hair regrowth product.  This led to her becoming a hair product saleswoman in addition to being a laundress.  She moved to Denver where she learned to create her own formulas for haircare products.  It is a story of entrepreneurship and investing in what you know.
