Daily Thoughts 01/11/2018

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

Last night, I read some more of Making Contact.  There is a strong relationship between searching for exoplanets and trying to find intelligent life.  One of the ideas attached to exoplanets is that we should like for a habitable zone where life could live.  NASA has an archive of exoplanets   In the future it may be possible to look at planets in other solar systems with something called a gravitational lens using the sun.    The gravitational lens is not in the book, it is just an interesting idea.

I checked the displays and the gift books today.

I also checked some items that needed to be put back in the catalog as well as a few items that needed to be mended.

We spent some time working on programs for February and March of 2018.

I also discussed the calendar and how much we were spending on programming with a colleague.

There is a computer class tonight from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for What Is Coding?

I checked out the graphic novel, Grandville Force Majeure A Detective Inspector Lebrock of Scotland Yard Scientific Romance Thriller by Bryan Talbot.  I also checked out the book, No Time to Spare Thinking About What Matters by Ursula K. Le Guin.
