Still life with books („In a library we are surrounded by friends“), L. Block, 1901

Daily Thoughts 02/07/2013

I have been reading more of Mastermind.  The book reminds me of how important it is to keep learning new things and not be overconfident.  I especially like some of the ideas on imagination and creativity in the book.

I checked the Facebook and Twitter for the library this morning.  I also checked the displays and gift books.
We had the computer lab today from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  I also spent some time working with the 900s.

Tonight is the second night for the Women's Enterprise Development Center First Steps program for small business.  It is in the community room from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

On the way home, I finished reading Mastermind How To think Like Sherlock Holmes by Maria Konnikova. I enjoyed reading the book.  It was quite creative in describing different mental techniques to hone attention and logic.  I am probably going to spend a little time going over some of the sections in the book like the ones on imagery and imagination.
