A Readers’ Advisory Podcast about becoming better library staff by reading every genre, whether we like them or not! 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.

This episode we’re talking about Beach Reads! We discuss what counts as a beach read, what doesn’t count as a beach read, whether any of us has even been to a beach recently (yes!), and more. Plus: We play “two truths and a lie” with books!

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