Daily Thoughts 04/20/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read the latest copy of the New York Times on the way to work.  There were a couple book reviews in it.

I checked the displays and the gift books.  There is an open house tonight from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m..

I generated a list Top Circulating Titles in Mount Vernon Public Library for nonfiction from Blue Cloud analytics.

James Williams Bujo will be demonstrating his painting skills.

I printed up a variety of flyers for events that are upcoming for the library.  I also spent a little time working on programming.  There are a number of poetry programs that I am planning for. Poetry is quite popular in our community.

The Book A Cover to Cover Exploration of the Most Powerful Object of Our Time by Keith Houston came in for me to read. I read some of it on the way home.  It describes how papyrus came out of Egypt as well as how the first parchment came from Pergamon.
