Daily Thoughts 02/15/2019

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Saving Community Journalism on the way to work.  I am reading about how the internet requires a change in strategy for small local newspapers to survive.

I also read some more of Personal Finance After 50.  I am reading about Social Security right now.

I am going to Evergreen Catalog training this morning for reports.  Evergreen is open source software.  It is a new system mainly used in the Pacific Northwest for library catalogs.  It is an open source software platform.

I spent some time checking the fiction in the mezzanine.

I put in some orders for new books today.

I also did some scheduling for next month.

I checked out the book, The Astronaut Maker How One Mysterious Engineer Ran Human Space Flight for a Generation by Michael Cassutt.

I also put in requests to attend the Urban Librarians Unite conference on April 12, 2019 and Book Expo America on May 29 through May 31st, 2019.
