Daily Thoughts 08/17/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read a little bit more of The Joy of Less on the way to work.

I checked the gift books and the displays today.

I also spent some time looking over the oversize books.

I went to the Mount Vernon Awards Ceremony for Arts Westchester.  We got part of the money for a grant for Hispanic Heritage month.  This should be very nice.  It was at 6:00 p.m.

I checked the books, The Stone Sky and The Fifth Season by N.K, Jemisin.  The Fifith Season won the 2016 Hugo Award.

I will be working on an order of Spanish language books with a colleague.

I finished reading The Joy of Less A Minimalist Guide to Declutter, Organize, and Simplify by Francine Jay on the way home.  The last part is how to live a minimalist lifestyle focusing on consuming less and experiencing more.  I also read a bit more of The New Librarianship Field Guide by R. David Lankes.
