Daily Thoughts 09/14/2019

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of The Jixia Academy and the Birth of Higher Learning In China A Comparison of 4th Century B.C. Chinese Education with Ancient Greece.  I am reading a comparison between Plato's ideal of the philosopher king and Xunzi's ideal of the scholar ruler.

I also read some more of History of Libraries in the Western World.  I am reading about the growth of libraries in Europe during the 18th century.  This is the period of the first national libraries.

I checked the displays and the gift books.

I spent some time shifting books in the mysteries.

I also spent some time looking at new science books.

I checked the 300s in the mezzanine.

I checked out the book, The Atlas of Happiness The Global Secrets About How to be Happy by Helen Russell.
