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.
