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.

Everyone enjoys the annual Pennsylvania Library Association conference, but how many of us know what goes into the planning? Join host Tom Berman as he interviews Dana Farabaugh, District Consultant for the Westmoreland County Federated Library System and the 2017 PALA Conference Planning Committee Chair, about this year’s conference. With over seventy educational and almost fifty poster sessions, attendees could be overwhelmed; but Farabaugh offers tips on how to get the most out of the conference, including her best advice: Talk to strangers! Tom and Dana discuss the new all-member mixer, changes to the Exhibit Hall and exciting events happening outside the conference like a trip to the historic Strip District and a dessert reception at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.
