Francis Barraud, Les pervenches, 1929
Daily Thoughts 09/05/2014
I read some of the book, Supersurvivors last night. It is about the difference between positive thinking under duress or an atttitude of self confidence combined with a methodical realistic plan for improving your condition. Self confidence wins. We get to learn about a man who goes blind then rows across the Atlantic ocean, a stunt man with one leg, and a person who becomes a successful electric violinist.
I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning. I also checked the displays and put up a few posters on censorship for banned book week. I also checked the gift books.
We had a management meeting. I have a number of reports I am working on including a departmental description, a summary of Adult Summer Reading Statistics, and the services survey.
After the management meeting, we had some staff training on Excel. We learned a bit about how to organize tables.
I checked out the book, The Warmth of Other Suns in preparation for the book club on September 23, 2014 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. I also spent some time going through a donation of African American nonfiction titles to see which ones we already had. We have quite a few gift books to add.
