Episode 32 - Public Libraries

April 15, 2021

Libraries & Literacy

Public libraries are an important part of our social infrastructure. This week, Chelsea and Katie share their love of public libraries and everything they do for communities. Your hosts discuss the sorts of activities they loved being able to participate in as children, including tracking dog poop all the way through the bookmobile and visits from pirates and Johnny Appleseed at story time. Chelsea (as usual) delves into history, and Katie explains just a few of the ways that libraries serve their communities.
