New York Public Library, New York City in 1914
Daily Thoughts 12/25/2018
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
I checked on the Give Gab campaign for a new Teen Lab/Young Adult Area this morning.
I read some of Red Moon by Kim Stanley Robinson. It is near future science fiction.
I also read some more of Capitalism In America A History. I am reading about the development of transportation starting with the Pony Express, then the canal system, then the railroads.
I watched some of Ex Libris The New York Public Library produced by Frederick Wiseman on Kanopy. It is a set of out takes with activities that happen in the New York Public Library. It does not try to explain what people are doing. It helps to understand and have a background in libraries before watching this movie. I am finding it interesting.
