I checked the library Twitter and Facebook today.
I read some more of Postcapitalism. Paul Mason cites Jeremy Rifkin's book, The Zero Margin Cost Society: The Internet of Things, The Collaborative Commons, and The Eclipse of Capitalism.
I checked the gift books and the displays. I also printed a few flyers. We are going to look at a new system for scheduling programs today.
We had a session on Plymouth Rocket Event Keeper which is a system to manage programming and events. It includes some features like the ability to create online signup sheets. http://www.eventkeeper.com
I spent a little time generating a report in Reports Station.
I am scheduling a tablet for weeding. There is a tablet for Mobile Circulation for Sirsi Dynix at the Westchester Library System.
I also looked through a copy of Baker and Taylor Forecast, the New York Times Book Review, and the Baker and Taylor Navigator.
I checked out the book, Native Son by Richard Wright. There is going to be a panel discussion of the book at the Mount Vernon Public Library on Monday, February 29, 2016 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. featuring Brian G. Johnson, Esquire, Shawna Marie Aarons-Cooke, LCSW, and Trustee Darren M. Morton, Ed.D..
