Old Woman Meditating, Gabriel Metsu, 1660-1662

Daily Thoughts 01/10/2018

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Making Contact.  This is a biography of Jill Tarter who is one of the founders of SETI and the astronomical search for aliens.  There is a list of terms which are used at the beginning of the book as well as a list of people in the book.

Last night I watched the documentary, The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin.  It was an official selection of the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.  It gives an excellent introduction to how bitcoin works.

I checked the displays and the gift books.

We are finished checking the 800s and 900s.  Right now, we are doing shifting.

I spent some time looking over books that were listed as not being in the catalog.

We spent some more time working on the calendar of events.

I also contacted people for programs for February and March.  We have a number of events that are already planned in the coming months.
