About This Show
This podcast focuses on Pennsylvania Libraries and the people who make them special. Every day in Pennsylvania a librarian impacts the life of a child, family, student, job seeker, grandparent or the guy next door. This is your opportunity to hear what is happening at a library somewhere in Pennsylvania - maybe even your home town.
This podcast was created as part of the Pennsylvania Library Association Academy of Leadership Studies. Developed by Mina Edmondson, Brian Fulton, Jill Hallam-Miller and Natalie Kulick.
