Weekly Favorites: Vol. 3

WORDS

INSPIRATION

As part of some recent library training, I’ve been assigned a course by Ryan Dowd about the best practices for interacting with patrons who are homeless. I’m about halfway through the course and have been impressed with Dowd’s insights, not only about homelessness but also trauma and poverty. I looked him up on YouTube and found this talk he gave about moral failure. It’s worth your time.

SCREEN

I saw A Star Is Born last Sunday and am still thinking about it. It’s a phenomenal film.

MUSIC

The soundtrack to A Star Is Born has been on frequent rotation this week.

WEBSITE

Wakelet is a site I discovered for the first time this past week. If you’re unfamiliar with it, it’s as if Pinterest and Pocket had a baby. It allows you to create collections of links, photos, text, PDFs, and tweets. Wakelet is easy to use and is well designed. I’ve been playing with it a lot, and am a big fan so far.
