Daily Thoughts 09/01/2016

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

Last night, I read some more of Invisible Influnce.  I am reading about how mimicry makes people like each other more.  On the train to work, I read about how people identify with different brands.

I checked the gift books and the displays.  I put out the latest copy of the Bookpage and read it.

Bruce Fabricant came by with his book, Mount Vernon, NY Sports Champions, Heroes, and Legends.  There is a very strong interest in sports in Mount Vernon. 

I spent some time preparing materials for events in October.  I also took a look at the Arts Alive grant from Arts Westchester today.

There was a Beginning Microsoft Excel class today from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

I checked out the book, Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates today.  We are reading it for our book club on September 29, 2016.  I also checked out the book, Paper Paging Through History by Mark Kurlansky.
