Daily Thoughts 04/29/2016

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I applied for the webinar,  Research in the Real World on May 17, 2016 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

There is a giving campaign today for the Mount Vernon Public Library through the Westchester Library System by Carolyn Karwoski.

I am reading more of Sweet Dreams Are Made of This by Dave Stewart.  It is a quite wild story.  Dave Stewart has his first record produced at 18, opens a small record shop, and has various psychedelic counterculture adventures in London.  It is the end of the 1960s and the beginning of the excessive 1970s.  He meets Annie Lennox, falls in love and she detoxes from drugs and helps him get to his feet.  The writing is superb storytelling.

I got a confirmation that Certified Public Library Administrator program had received my transcripts from University of Pittsburgh.  They will meet in July to determine who gets into the program.
