Figures Flowers and Landscape, Cheng Hongshou, One Leaf, 1627
Daily Thoughts 06/13/2019
I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.
I read some of The Meditations by Marcus Aurelius on the train to work. It is stoic philosophy.
I checked the displays and the gift books.
I spent some time checking for damaged material on the main floor and in the mezzanine.
I put in several orders for new books this afternoon from New York State funds. I am also working on an order for nonfiction DVDs.
Tomorrow I am going to If We Build It... Sustainable Funding In Libraries and Archives at Metro from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. It should be quite interesting.
I am also going to present for a few minutes at the Community Development Block Grant Meeting on June 17, 2019.
I spent some time working on paperwork for grants this morning. I had to fill out some final forms and fax a few things.
There is a session today on how to download videos and pictures to your smart phone in the computer lab at 5:30 p.m.
