DailThoughts 2/14/2011 (Sony Library Program)

William Wordsworth's House, Rydal Mount, 1897

Daily Thoughts 2/14/2011

Happy Valentines day.  I was on vacation today.  I found out we got the Sony Library Readers grant which makes me quite happy.

I also looked at our twitter account for the library because I like checking it.

I put the book Data driven : profiting from your most important business asset by  Thomas C. Redman on hold. I also put the book Redemption In Indigo by Karen Lord on hold as well.

A Set of Book Covers from the 1950s and 1960s for science fiction on Facebook.

Congress plans to eliminate Public Broadcasting.  This is one of the few things that I will watch on television.  Public Broadcasting is necessary to maintain a free society because it is supposed to support unbiased news.  We also buy a lot of material on history from PBS for our library.  It has more value than just money.  One of the few sources of news that I actually watch is the Public Broadcasting System. This would be a blow to free society.  I am beginning to think there is a little bit too much control by big business in our government.  This stifles the creation of smaller business enterprises and places limits on creative destruction in the process of capitalism.
