Daily Thoughts 02/17/2017

I checked the libraries Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some of Moonglow by Michael Chabon on the way home last night.  Moonglow is a memoir turned fictional.  It is stories of Michael Chabon's family.  However, Michael Chabon does not try and present it as truth.  It is a story.  He starts with his grandparents.  The title Moonglow refers to his grandfather's love of space.

I talked to Scholastic today about databases.

I have been doing a tally of the computer resources at the Mount Vernon Public Library for the Management of Technology class.

On the subway today, I also read a little bit of In The Great Green Room The Brilliant and Bold Life of Margaret Wise Brown. Margaret Wise Brown wrote The Runaway Bunny and Goodnight Moon.

I spent some time looking at the Visualizing Funding for Libraries Data Tool
