Portrait of Godfrey Frankenstein, by John Frankenstein, 1840, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum Purchase

Daily Thoughts 05/01/2020

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

There is a description up on our website on how to use Zoom.  There are some programs in the children's room on Zoom.

I spent a little more time focusing on the census.

I read some more of The Goodness Paradox.  I am reading about the difference between planned murders and murders caused by emotional reactions.

We are working on a description for Kanopy.

I spent some time watching a training video on Zoom on

I also watched the How We Got to Now session on Cold on Kanopy.  I have 20 checkouts because I have account both with the Westchester Library System and the New York Public Library System.  If you live in New York State you can get a New York Public library card.

There was a DJ Census Party online sponsored by the Complete Count Commmittee of the City of Mount Vernon.  It was to encourage people to do the census.  It was on Facebook.

I finished reading Runaways Pride and Joy Volume 1.  It is an interesting graphic novel.  It seems to be teen focused.  I read it on Hoopla.  Hoopla is using it for their graphic novel club.
