Girl Reading in a Salon, Giovanni Boldini, 1876

Daily Thoughts 07/19/2013

This morning, I read some more of Burning the Page.  There is quite a bit about the future of libraries and the future of bookstores in this book.  Jason Merkoski mentions the Digital Public Library of America as well as quite a bit about Barnes and Noble.  He also mentions the book, The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson a number of times.

I spent a little time this morning placing orders.  I also spent a little time checking the Facebook and Twitter account for the library.

This morning, we had a management meeting.  We spent some time discussing different things like the reopening of the fiction room, getting a color copying machine, working on the website, customer service, and other issues.

I spent some time this afternoon looking at the shelves and talking to people about annual circulation statistics for the library and local population demographics from the American Community Survey.
