Becoming better library staff by reading books we hate! Every month we read books from a new, randomly picked genre; then on the podcast we discuss our reading choices, experiences, opinions, appeal factors, and other related topics as friends and library workers.

Aug 1, 2017

We give an update on how our reading resolutions for the year are going, talk about recent reads (and watches) we’ve enjoyed, and briefly discuss San Diego Comic-Con. Plus: Enter our contest to win fabulous prizes!

You can download the podcast directly, find it on Libsyn, or get it through iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play or your favourite podcast delivery system.
