Daily Thoughts 08/06/2018

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

On the way to work, I read some more of Factfulness.  I am reading about how Africa is improving its economy and hopes to match the west.

I also read some more of The Librarian's Guide to Homelessness.  I am reading about various ways to get people to cooperate when they break the rules using empathetic techniques.

I checked the gift books and the displays this morning.

I spent some time discussing lost and missing items this morning.

I also spent some time planning for signage.

Right now, I am in the computer lab.

I have my monthly report to write.

There is a Fundamentals of Computers Class and a Beginning Microsoft Word 2013 class in the computer lab tonight.

I have a copy of Booklist to read.

I read some more of The Librarians Guide to Homelessness on the way home.  This books gives non-aggressive, positive ways to deal with a variety of issues from smell to sleeping to excessive numbers of bags.  It is empathetic, teaches communication skills and is a captivating read.
