Daily Thoughts 10/26/2018

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Prediction Machines.  I am reading about how artificial intelligence is increasingly used for special functions like finding MBA candidates and sorting boxes.

I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.

We had a downloads class today from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the computer lab.  We discussed Freegal, RB Digital Value Collection for Magazines, and Flipster.  People liked the class.

I checked the New York Times Bestseller List and the Publishers Weekly Bestseller List.

I spent some time checking the books in the mending area.

There is a Codrones class in the computer lab from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

There is also a teen video games hour from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
