Reading Woman on a Couch, Isaac Israel, by 1934
Daily Thoughts 10/09/2019
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this afternoon.
This morning, I was at the Kings Highway Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. They are the first branch in Brooklyn with a Best Buy Teen Computer Center. We spent time looking at the different computers. They had a dozen hewlett packards and four MacIntosh computers. \
There was also a sound studio with a midi keyboard and drums. There was a drawing tablet and cameras and a variety of other electronics like a makerbot. It was a combination of makerspace and computer lab. I liked seeing the setting.
We are planning on applying for the Best Buy Grant. We are also planning for a teen lab and maker space of our own at the Mount Vernon Public Library.
I checked the gift books and the displays when I got back.
People continued to shift books while I was out.
I read a copy of the Times Literary Supplement and the New York Review of Books.
