Daily Thoughts 03/31/2016

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook today.

I read a little bit more of She's Come Undone on the way home last night.  The tragedy in this novel never stops.  I rather liked the ending because it wraps up into something positive.

Mary C. Bounds is going to read from and discuss her nonfiction book at the Mount Vernon Public Library, A Light Shines in Harlem: New York's First Charter School and the Movement It Led from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the community room.  We had a nice group for the book reading.   Mary C. Bounds signed a copy of the book and give it to the library.  We now have two copies of the book.  The story was quite interesting.  It was about more than just charters school.  There were also some references to civil rights and education.

I spent some time working with the new ADP system for tracking people.

I have copy of the Times Literary Supplement and the New York Review of Books to read.

There was a beginning Microsoft Powerpoint class tonight from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

On the way home, I read some more of The Complete Guide to Acquisitions Management.  I am reading about gift programs and donations of books.  We give our donations to the Friends of the Mount Vernon Public Library and they sell them in their book sales.
