Daily Thoughts 11/24/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Opening Up By Writing It Down.  The book comes from a number of studies which show that writing down traumas helps reduce the feelings associated with the trauma as well as the health effects which occur.

I checked the displays and the gift books.

I spent some time checking the 800s.  Also, we finished checking the 900s today.  I also checked some books that were listed as not being in the catalog.

 I read the New York Times bestseller list and the Publishers Weekly Bestseller list.

There is a new program that is part of Humanities New York called Your Silence will Not Protect You-- The Writings of Audre Lorde.  I think this would be an opportunity to do something interesting.  Audre Lorde once worked at the Mount Vernon Public Library.

I checked out the book, Drawing Physics 2,600 Years of Discovery From Thales to Higgs by Don S. Lemons.
