The Nature of Gothic, John Ruskin, First Page, Kelmscott Press, 1890s
Daily Thoughts 01/14/2020
I took a day off from library things to rest.
This morning I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.
I read some more of The Wisdom of Frugality. There are some problems that sometimes occur with excess frugality, mercenariness, ungenerosity, and stagnation. Living a mean life without change because you cannot afford anything is not a positive thing. You have to have things to be generous and give to others.
I checked the displays and the gift books.
I spent some time checking the biography in the mezzanine. I also checked for some books on the main floor biography to shift downstairs.
I went to the Complete Count Committee for the Census today on January 14, 2020 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Mount Vernon City Hall, there is going to be another meeting on January 28, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. We are discussing what we plan to do for the next meeting. There will be another meeting for Community Based Organizations on Wednesday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the community room at the library. There is going to be a focus on increasing the amount of people that are counted by the census this year.
I looked through a copy of the New York Times Book Review and the Times Literary Supplement today.
The Crochet Group met today from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the community room.
I also worked on scheduling with ADP.
There is a Fundamentals of Computers Class tonight and a Beginning Microsoft Word class from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the computer lab.
