Daily Thoughts 01/31/2020
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
Last night, I read some more of The Periodic Table A Visual Guide to the Elements. I am reading about a lot of substances I have never read about before like Yttrium.
I read some more of Dead Astronauts. Because there are different timelines in the story, the characters can be dead in one timeline and alive in another.
I checked the displays and the gift books.
I checked the biography books in the mezzanine.
I am changing the location of some of the biography books to the mezzanine.
I worked on two orders of new books.
I checked The New York Times and Publishers Weekly Bestseller lists.
I helped a colleague work on a grant for a collection assessment of the local history room.
