Daily Thoughts 12/11/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Winning Elections and Influencing Politicians for Library Funding.  I am reading about how to respond to opposition to libraries.  A lot of opposition to libraries comes from people who oppose increased taxes.

I checked the displays and the gift books.

I spent some time working on Give Gab.  We got a few more donations for the Lets Build Robots! fundraising campaign.

I put in two orders for books.

I also spent some time working on e-books.

I read a copy of the New York Times Book Review.

We had a holiday origami program today from 3:00 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. in the fiction room.  We made balls and cranes to hang with beads and thread.

There is a Beginning Microsoft Word class and a Fundamentals of Computers Class tonight.

We also have an Intergenerational Board Games night from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m..  A lot of teenagers were coming and we had to decide whether to make it adults and teens or just adults.
