Daily Thoughts 12/08/2017
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
On the way to work, I read some of the book Bunk. I am reading about the Cottingley fairy hoaxes. Arthur Conan Doyle believed in fairies.
I also read a little more of Winning Elections and Influencing Politicians. I am reading about the process of mapping out a budget campaign for libraries.
I checked the displays and the gift books.
We had a training session for e-books focusing on Overdrive and 3M Cloud Library. Overdrive recently released the Libby App.
I spent some time working with Overdrive this afternoon because there were some changes in how Overdrive Advantage is being administered.
I also spent some time in the computer lab this afternoon helping someone scan photographs.
I also spent some time working on the Audre Lorde program which we are planning for April 2017.
I checked the New York Times Bestseller List and the Publishers Weekly Bestseller List this afternoon and worked on some book orders.
I read part of the New York Times Book Review today. It is the time of the holiday book review issue. The December 3, 2017 book review is 80 pages long. I expect to get lists of every title that was potentially good during this year.
I checked out In The Midst of Winter by Isabel Allende. It is being read by the book club this month.
