Daily Thoughts 05/13/2016

I read a bit more of The Invaders.  I am reading about the advantages of using dogs in hunting.  Dogs can make sure prey stays in place, make more meat available, find animals quicker, and carry small loads as pack animals.

Last night, there was a Prince dance party at the library, it was quite interesting.  Also the Westchester Library System was moving its data center from White Plains, New York to Harrison, New York.  The dance party was kind of fun.  It was part of a promotion done by Hoopla.  Hoopla recently go the rights to stream Prince to its service.

I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.

They moved the charging cabinets for laptops downstairs to the tech area.  We will soon be able to use laptops for programs in the community room.

There is a program today to demonstrate our Makerbot in the computer lab from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.  The program went quite well today.  We had good attendance and people were interested in experiencing further programs.

I spent some time checking scheduling for programs and ADP today.

I also checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library today.
