Daily Thoughts 10/25/2018

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Prediction Machines.  I read about how factories and work areas with few people are likely to be automated first because there are less risks.  For example, an iron mine is much more likely to be fully automated first than a garment factory.

I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.

I also did a little work with Give Gab which is a platform for fundraising.  We get an account through the Westchester Library System.

I spent some time preparing for our downloads class in the morning.  We discussed the different services we have like Freegal, Hoopla, Kanopy, Overdrive, and Freading.

I spent a little time looking at the books in the mending section. I also sorted some books from Rainbow Books.
