Daily Thoughts 07/27/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

Last night, I read some more of Work Clean.  A lot of the book is about how chefs organize beforehand, prep the ingredients, then work in a very systematic way to prepare large amounts of food.  The method being described is called mise in place.  There are also descriptions of the Japanese kitchen apprenticeship for chefs.

I checked the displays and the gift books.

I spent some more time working with the 900s.

I also worked on an order of e-books with a colleague.

There was a Beginning Microsoft Publisher class tonight from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the computer lab.

On Saturday, the city is coming to discuss the Community Development Block Grant from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Grace Greene Baker Community Room.  The Planning Department is interested in what we want for the library.

I spent some time working on an assignment for the Planning and Management of Library Buildings today.
