Daily Thoughts 12/22/2017

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.

On the way to work, I read some more of Bunk.  I am reading about the thin line between fiction and fact in biographies.  It is often not clear when a book is fiction or not.

I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.

I spent some time getting ready for a Holiday Craft program tomorrow in the fiction room.

A person gave a small amount of money to the Lets Build Robots! Tweens Learn. Build. Share. today.  We have raised $3705 so far for the program.

I also described how I use current awareness in a short document this morning.

Right now, I am in the computer lab.

I spent some time checking the 800s.

I also looked through a copy of the Times Literary Supplement as well as looked at the latest New York Times Bestseller List and Publishers Weekly Bestseller list.  I looked through a copy of the Ingram Advance Graphic Novels and Comics Winter 2017-2018 as well.

I will be going on vacation next week.

I checked out the book An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon.
