This Certainly Is Reading, Francisco Goya, 1799

Daily Thoughts 07/05/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

On the way to work, I finished reading Small Hours by Jennifer Kitses.  I like that the story was left open ended.  It is not hard to imagine what might happen next.  I think it will be easy to discuss for a book club.

I also read some more of Visual Intelligence Sharpen Your Perception Change Your Life. Amy Herman discusses confirmation bias and change blindness which are tendencies to overlook differences or unusual occurrences in every day life.  She also describes how it is important to keep track of your environment especially in dangerous situations.

I checked the displays and the gift books.  I put in an order for new books today.  I also put in some stories in the display cabinet next to the computer lab from Share Your Story.

I am working on a few different programs right now.

More of our swag for the Summer Reading program has come in.  We just got in our cups.

Next week on July 13, 2017 we are having a discussion about the Central Library Status with the Westchester Library System at 6:00 p.m. This is a very important conversation for the Mount Vernon Public Library.

There is an Intermediate Microsoft Excel class tonight from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The book, The Wealth of Humans, Work, Power, and Status in the Twenty First Century by Ryan Avent.
