I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.
I enjoyed reading The Spark by David Drake. It is a nice mix of fantasy and science fiction. The whole book held together very well. I like how the line between magic and science was very thin in the story.
I checked the gift books and the displays. September is Library Card Sign Up month. There is also going to be a Comic-Con on September 23rd which is be put together by my colleague. The theme for September is Library Card Sign Up Month is the Teen Titans. I displayed some graphic novels today.
I also met with some colleagues to discuss the upcoming author fair on October 7, 2017. We were working on designing a banner. We just finished creating a save the date postcard for the event. The postcards should be sent out soon.
I spent some time shifting the 900s. I am hoping to move some books out of the oversize stacks soon.
We spent a little bit of time working on flyers today.
I am interested in reading Endurance: A Year In Space, A Lifetime of Discovery by Scott Kelly which is coming out in October.
I read a copy of the New York Times Book Review. Right now, I am looking through the October 2017 Ingram Advance. I am on the children's room reference desk.
There is a Windows 7-- Files and Folders class tonight from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the computer lab.
