√Čtienne Carjat, Portrait of Charles Baudelaire, circa 1862

Daily Thoughts 07/12/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.

I also spent some time checking the biography.

I worked a little bit on the Community Development Block Grant.  I am looking at some Maker tools.

I spent a little time looking up statistics today for the library.

There is a teen coding class today from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the computer lab for HTML 5 and CSS 3.  There is also an Advanced Microsoft Excel class from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. tonight.

On the way home, I read some more of The Wealth of Humans.  Ryan Avent describes how investing in education may not guarantee jobs.  He also goes over the gig economy focusing on services like Uber and markets for crafts like Etsy.

The Westchester Library System's Central Library Study Committee is coming tomorrow.  I am going to be on the refrence desk during the meeting.  Please come in support of the Mount Vernon Public Library.
