Daily Thoughts 01/09/2020

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I started reading The Wisdom of Frugality Why Less Is More-- More or Less by Emrys Westacott.  This is a book about the moral and ethical underpinnings of frugality.

I checked the displays and the gift books.

I put in two orders of new books.

We are discussing shifting books out of the young adult area.

I spent some time checking books in the mezzanine biography area.  Some colleagues are shelf reading and neatening the sections to make it easier to work in the area.

There was a Bullet Journaling class in the community room this afternoon from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

There was also an Introduction to the Internet class tonight in the computer lab from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
