Daily Thoughts 07/14/2016

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Infomocracy on the way to work.  The main characters are members of different political parties in the mini-democracy system. There are a few parties who have supermajority and have more worldwide influence.  It is an interesting take on the future of politics.

I checked the gift books and the displays this morning.

I also worked a little bit on weeding.

Today, I watched an introductory webinar on the Bibliotecha Cloud Ebook System.  I also watched a webinar on the content acquisition tool as well.

We now have a scanner in the computer lab.

I spent some time updating the Bookletters page today as well.

On the way home, I read some more of The Hound of the Baskervilles, I rather like the old fashioned sensibility of Arthur Conan Doyle.

 I also read a little bit more of Infomocracy.  I rather like that the characters sneak around and are deceptive more than they are violent.  I also like the idea of the story partially centering on an earthquake.
