Daily Thoughts 10/03/2016

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of James Gleick Time Travel.  I am reading about Robert Heinlein's time travel stories.

I checked the displays and the gift books.

I spent a little time working on programming.

I am in the computer lab right now.

I placed an order for popular law books today.

There was an Adult Board Games Night tonight with Chess, Checkers, and Scrabble.  We are trying it as a series this month.

We also had a Fundamentals of Computers and Beginning Microsoft Word class tonight.

On the way home, I read some more of Time Travel.  I am reading about metaphors of time like time being a river or time being like an arrow.  James Gleick is moving away from science fiction to physicists like Richard Feynman and Albert Einstein to describe time.

I am finishing listening to the podcasts for my Fundraising and Grantsmanship class tonight. They are looking at how far along we are in the grants process.  I believe we have been doing a lot of investment in fundraising lately.  The Friends of the Mount Vernon Public Library had their first large annual meeting.  There is going to be a Masquerade Ball Fundraising Event by the Mount Vernon Public Library Foundation on October 13, 2016.
The annual Book Sale by the Mount Vernon Public Library Friends of the Library is on November 4 and November 5 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
