Daily Thoughts 10/17/2019
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
Last night I read Infinity A Graphic Guide by Brian Clegg and Oliver Pugh. I enjoyed reading the book because it made math interesting. There are a lot of different ideas about infinity in this book from a variety of sources. It describes math from many different cultures, India, Greece, Italy, Germany, France, England, other places.
I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.
I checked on some programming. The second session for the See It! Write It! Say It! is happening tonight from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the community room.
I checked some books in the mezzanine.
We are also working on shifting the books on the main floor of the library.
I had a demonstration of the new World Book Online Encyclopedia tools today from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
There is a Microsoft Excel class from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. tonight in the computer lab.
I checked out the book, Hipster Death Rattle by Richie Narvaez. He is going to be doing a book reading and discussion of gentrification at the Mount Vernon Public Library in November.
