Daily Thoughts 03/08/2013
This morning, I read some more of Al Gore, The Future. I am reading about issues of growth and population. A lot of it is about peak food production, peak oil, rising sea levels, and diminishing resources.
This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library. I also checked the displays. I also spent a little time thinking about the Mills Law Collection which is a collection of law books, and the Haynes Collection which is a collection of African American reference books.
I spent some time working with the 600s and also spent some time looking at the new books. Simon Garfield's book On the Map just came up for the new books. I also checked the donations. We got a new book donated about Martin Luther King Jr. which we are adding to the collection.
On the way home, I read a little bit more of Al Gore, The Future. Right now, I am reading about changes in genetic engineering from the human genome project to patenting life. It is interesting and a bit scary.
