An afternoon’s reading - painting by Felix Milius (1843–1894)

Daily Thoughts 05/16/2013

I spent some time checking the social media this morning.

I also started reading Debt The First 5,000 Years by David Graeber.  David Graeber is known for creating the slogan "We are the 99%".  This book asks questions about debt and modern economics.  It questions ideas like barter systems are the first economic systems and whether we need to pay back our monetary debts.

I checked the displays and did a little more weeding in the 900s.  The computer lab is open from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m..  The library also has computer classes for Microsoft Word and Microsoft Powerpoint tonight.

We put out the latest copy of Bookpage for June.  We are also adding a poetry book by a local minister, the form and structure of the poetry is formally correct.

This slideshow is a work in progress.  It is kind of interesting.
