Portrait of Frederick Collett,  Frits Thaulow, August 13, 1875
Daily Thoughts 04/09/2013

This morning, I finished reading Extinction Machine.  It was a mix of techno thriller and science fiction.  I rather enjoyed the story.  I might read the other books in the series.

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.  I also checked the gift books and the displays.  There were a few books to add from the gift books.

I am thinking about reading The Age of the Image: Redefining Literacy in the Age of Screens by Stephen Apkon.  The book is about visual literacy.

I spent a little bit of time checking the 900s as well as the large print collection.  Centerpoint Large Print sent us a free sample of of four large print books.  I also spent some time working on getting another computer class for Thursdays.  We put a sample of the magazine, Bookpage out which is a review magazine for libraries.

We have been working a little bit more on the Booksite page. http://library.booksite.com/7273/nl/?list=CNL7
