Thomas Henry Huxley, John Collier, 1885
Daily Thoughts 10/07/2017
I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning. I was looking for things related to the Mount Vernon Local Author Fair which happened today.
I got in early to work this morning. I wrote a sign in sheet for the authors and a sheet for the public. We wrote a program for the author fair.
Authors started coming in at around 9:00 a.m. and we set them up in the community room. There were far more authors than I expected initially. All of them were local authors. The community room kept on filling up until we had over 24 local authors from Mount Vernon, New York. At 12:00 p.m, they stopped coming in and I made a short speech inviting the authors to Mount Vernon Public Library. I also acknowledged Deborah Nelson who helped me out with the author fair and Mount Vernon Arts and Culture who helped sponsor the fair.
There was a panel at 12:30 p.m. in the Trustees room. Ruth Hassell-Thompson, who was Mount Vernon's state senator stopped in.
Afterwards we served lunch to the authors. Then we gave each author a chance to read from their works. It was quite successful.
It was our first Mount Vernon Local Author Fair. I think it worked well this time and will improve the next time we do it.
