Daily Thoughts 09/20/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

On the way to work, I read some more of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  The author asserts that leadership is more important than management.   I find this to be interesting, leadership is a bit different than management.  For me this statement is like saying strategy is more important tactics.  I also read some of Great By Choice by Jim Collins and Morten T. Hansen this morning.

I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.

I also spent some time working on graphic novel handout for comics lit.  Hopefully, there should be some printed soon.  My colleague is working on a bookmark for recent writing books.

We have the new flier for the computer classes for October ready.

There was a program today.  People enjoyed it tremendously.  It was a Tango class taught by Josie LaRiccia.  This was part of a grant from ArtsWestchester.  It was from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. today.

There is a Wordpress class tonight from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. today in the computer lab.

The Mount Vernon Public Library Board of Trustees Meeting is tonight.

A number of books came in for me for my Organizing and Personnel Management class including Leading Libraries How To Create a Service Culture by Wyoma VanDuinKirken, Expect More Demanding Better Libraries for Today's Complex World by R. David Lankes, and New Routes to Library Success 100+ Ideas From Outside The Stacks by Elisabeth Doucett.

I read a copy of Library Journal for September 1st.  I have another copy to read.  I looked through two copies of the Times Literary Supplement.
