Daily Thoughts 09/14/2012

I read more of Abundance this morning.  The authors are writing about the future of food production.  It includes a number of subjects which I find interesting including vertical farms, aquaponics, aeroponics, integrated aquaponic farms, and cultured meat.

I came in a little early to work this morning.  We had a meeting which went well.  I spent a little time writing my thoughts down.  I checked the displays, the new books, and updated the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the library.  Arts Westchester is bringing in a new exhibit with proposed statues that are being suggested for the library.  It should be quite interesting.

I also looked at Library Journal Online, Lisnews, Publishers Weekly Online, and the various LinkedIn groups I belong to to see if there was any news of interest. 

This afternoon there was an installation put in the Rotunda Gallery of three different models of sculptures that are finalists for a proposed sculpture in front of the children's room.  This is Sponsored by the library and Arts Westchester.  The sculptures are interesting to look at.

I checked out Volume 1 and Volume 2 of Smart Spanish which is a language instruction cd audiobook.
