Daily Thoughts 9/15/2011

I had a very busy day yesterday.  I updated the Twitter and Facebook account, checked the displays and made sure the fliers were up to date.

I also opened the computer lab for the academic use between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m.

Later in the evening, we had the Writers Networking Workshop from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the rotunda.  They are preparing for a presentation at Lola's Tea House in Pelham on September 29, 2011 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m..  The program is going very well.

I also put the book, A Pleasure to Burn Fahrenheit 451 Stories by Ray Bradbury.  This is a collection of short stories based on the novel, Fahrenheit 451.

A Century of Philanthropy: The Carnegie Corporation of New York

The Mount Vernon Public Library is a Carnegie building.  Construction started in 1896.  The building was finished in 1904.  There is a lot of old beautiful art in the building including a fresco by Louise Brann and the Doric Hall entryway.
