I wrote my what are you reading Wednesday post earlier this week, and figured out how to schedule it. I planned on touching it up a bit before actually posting it, but it decided it was good enough. All the info was there, but it wasn’t exactly in complete sentences. It got posted on Wednesday, and that was my goal for the year. So, I guess I started out ok.
I am really enjoying my kindle/library book and hope to finish it today. I woke up because of coughing from asthma and allergies, so I cancelled my other plans for today.
Today isn’t going to be as much of an adventure as I thought, but I can at least attempt productivity. I managed to feed the cats so far. They appreciated it.
The above linked article talks about the limits that publishers put on libraries when it comes to ebooks. One copy for hundreds of thousands of library patrons seems ridiculous. I hope that other publishing houses don’t follow the example.
The San Francisco library is having exhibits honoring the 1969 native American occupation. I went to two of the talks, and I looked at two of the exhibits. There are two more that I haven’t gotten to. I am learning a lot that I wasn’t expecting to learn. I am amazed that a lot of this stuff wasn’t taught in school, and if it was, it was taught with a biased slant.
I plan on going back and finishing the other two exhibits.
I found this at the Sunset library. I need to look into it, too.
I have found all of this information fascinating. History that I had no knowledge of.
I came here for an event about Alcatraz. I went early to get things done. There is plenty of seating, but, with the middle school and high school right up the street and around the corner, it was full of kids. Loud kids. Free babysitting until the parents get off work?
The event was being held in “the meeting room” but I couldn’t find the meeting room when I arrived. I did find the bathroom immediately, thank goodness. I asked the librarian where the meeting room is, and she pointed to the room labeled “programs.” She seemed surprised that I didn’t immediately know that the meeting room wasn’t labeled “meeting room.”
Other than the kids after school, this a nice place to sit and read. There are plenty of places for adults to sit, unlike the Parkside branch. I had to wait a little while for a table with a plug to charge my kindle,but it wasn’t long. The kids cleared out by around 5:15, so it wasn’t bad at all.
Don’t Disturb the DeadI went to the main library in San Francisco to do some reading and to get some quiet work done. I ran into this exhibit about the cemeteries that had to be moved from San Francisco to Colma when it became illegal to bury a body in San Francisco, back in 1901.It had a lot of information, and I plan on getting back there to look a little more.
