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.
