Daily Thoughts 04/11/2018

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.

I read some more of Enlightenment Now on the train to work.  I am reading about extinction events like major plagues, nuclear war, and an artificial intelligence takeover of humanity.

I met briefly with a representative from Reference USA to discuss their business database.  They also have a new product for libraries called Patron Link

I spent some time checking the oversize books this morning.

I also read through a copy of the Times Literary Supplement.

There is an Audre Lorde program tonight in the community room.  We have all of Audre Lorde's books which came in from Humanities New York.  Mariel Rodney, an Assistant Professor of Literature from Pace University will be leading the discussion on Audre Lorde tonight from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
