Vanitas: A skull, a violin, an upturned tazza, books, tarot cards, a fob watch, a clay pipe, a taper, and a pouch of tobacco on a pewter plate, on a wooden table draped with a rug, Attributed to Sebastien Bonnecroy

Daily Thoughts 02/26/2016

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook today.

I read some more of Postcapitalism.  Paul Mason cites Jeremy Rifkin's book, The Zero Margin Cost Society: The Internet of Things, The Collaborative Commons, and The Eclipse of Capitalism.

I checked the gift books and the displays.  I also printed a few flyers.  We are going to look at a new system for scheduling programs today.

We had a session on Plymouth Rocket Event Keeper which is a system to manage programming and events.  It includes some features like the ability to create online signup sheets.

I spent a little time generating a report in Reports Station.

I am scheduling a tablet for weeding.  There is a tablet for Mobile Circulation for Sirsi Dynix at the Westchester Library System.

I also looked through a copy of Baker and Taylor Forecast, the New York Times Book Review, and the Baker and Taylor Navigator.

I checked out the book, Native Son by Richard Wright.  There is going to be a panel discussion of the book at the Mount Vernon Public Library on Monday, February 29, 2016 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. featuring Brian G. Johnson, Esquire, Shawna Marie Aarons-Cooke, LCSW, and Trustee Darren M. Morton, Ed.D..
