The Ten Cent Breakfast, Willard Metcalf, 1887

Daily Thoughts 09/26/2012

This morning I watched a Spanish language instruction dvd.  Spanish language instruction is very popular at our library, especially, cd audiobooks and dvds.  People want media for language instruction more than books.

I checked the displays and updated the Twitter and Facebook for the library.  Also, the book, Finding My Elegy New and Selected Poems  by Ursula K. Leguin came in for me to read.  I spent some time checking the September 30, 2012 New York Times Book Review.

I also read the latest Forecast from Baker and Taylor.  There is a new book coming out by Nassim Nicholas Taleb in November called Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder.  Nassim Nicholas Taleb wrote The Black Swan.

The library has the Computer Lab open from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. today.  There are some people from the computer class on Tuesday practicing Microsoft Word.

There is a new beta catalog for the Westchester Library System at:
