I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
I read some more of The Library Book by Susan Orlean. I read about how Ray Bradbury wrote Fahrenheit 451 in the basement of the Los Angeles Public Library. I also read about some of the early directors of Los Angeles Public Library.
I read a little more of The Moral Economy. I am reading about how incentives for things which people were doing for free often lead to people stop dong the activities which people were doing for free.
I started reading Political Risk How Businesses and Organizations Can Anticipate Global Insecurity by Condolezza Rice and B. Zegart. This is a book with lots of new concepts in it. It starts with the story of Blackfish, a film about mistreating Orcas which put Sea World in Florida out of business.
I checked the gift books and the displays this morning.
I spent some time discussing signage with our marketing person this morning.
I got a set of Advanced Reading Copies for teenagers from my representative from Brodart.
We spent some time preparing for programming in July and August.
We got a list of all the ISBNs for items which we ordered during the last year for Select Reads.
I am off tomorrow so I cleaned off my desk a bit.
I checked out the book Organized Simplicity The Clutter Free Approach to Intentional Living by Tish Oxenreider.
There is a Microsoft Excel class tonight from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the computer lab.
