I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
On the way to work, I read a little more of The Blood of Elves by Andrej Sapkowski. It is classic fantasy with dwarves, elves, gnomes, humans, wizards, and high adventure. The books have been turned into a netflix series and a video game.
I checked the displays and the gift books.
I am going to the Mount Vernon Census kickoff this afternoon at the Doles Center from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
I spent some time this morning talking to a person about doing a genealogy program.
The census kickoff was at the Doles Center. It was the first time I had been there. It is a senior center in Mount Vernon, New York. There were a variety of speakers from different agencies including the mayor Shawyn Patterson Howard and a number of church groups. People gave speeches on why it is important to be counted for the census and why Mount Vernon, New York is undercounted. I picked up some flyers to distribute at the library at the end.
I looked through Bookpage and I looked through Times Literary Supplement.
