Seated Man Reading a Newspaper, Pablo Picasso, 1912
Daily Thoughts 09/11/2018
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
I read some more of Autonomy this morning. I am reading about what happens when there is no longer a driver in commercial vehicles. One of the things that happens is that there is not a need for a vehicle to stop for sleep, this extends the range of long haul trucks. It also is cheaper because the steering mechanisms and cabs for people are removed.
I read some more of The Complete Beck Diet for Life as well. I am writing response cards to different situations like weekend eating, eating at restaurants, and people offering you food.
I checked the displays and the gift books.
I took a look at my online class, Politics and Partnerships.
I met with the representative from Brodart and discussed the ordering system called Bibz for books. I learned a number of different things which will improve ordering for our library. After I was done, I put in four orders for new books.
We met to discuss the Arts Alive grant today for Community workshops. We are working on a grant focusing on journaling and art.
There is a Fundamentals of Computers and a Beginning Microsoft Word 2013 class in the computer lab tonight.
