Woman in Night Robe Reading a Letter

Young Woman In Night Robe Reading A Letter, Suzuki Haronobu, 1764-1772

Daily Thoughts 10/27/2018

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

Last night, I read some more of Prediction Machines.  I am reading about how jobs will be redesigned because of artificial intelligence.  For example you might have a convoy of self driving trucks with two people to monitor five or six trucks on the road.  Also, parts of jobs which are routine will disappear while other parts which require human decision making will expand.

I looked through the book Art Journal Kickstarter Pages and Prompts to Energize Your Art Journals by Kristy Conlin.  This is a selection of pages from different art journals.  There is a picture then a discussion of a page from an art journal.  There are many different artists.  It is pretty and fun to look at.  It is the kind of book you keep as a conversation starter or to display on a table.  I flipped through the pages to see what was in it.  The content is mixed media.

We received $134,774 dollars to address the water damage to the Mount Vernon Public Library.  This is from a construction grant.  It will help address damage to the back offices, a study room, areas in the children's room and the young adult room.
