Chess Game, Marcel Duchamp, 1910

Daily Thoughts 09/09/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some of Successful Library Fundraising Best Practices Edited by M. Sandra Wood.   One of the main points which I got from the book was that we need to get a base of people who provide funds to a library and contact them on a continuous basis or create long term endowments to a library.  The most money comes from planned giving.

I looked up some of the local authors from Mount Vernon today.

I read some more of What It Means When a Man Falls From the Sky Stories.  I especially like the short story, War Story.

I spent some time looking at games today for our library.  I am planning to do an order of both traditional and new games.  We have received a variety of games as donations which are being used in our Adult Board Games night.

I requested the Free Library Starter Set from American Go
