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.
