Just in case you were wondering – talking about books is a favorite pastime for librarians. Connecting a reader to their new favorite read gives us goosebumps, and sharing a love of story and the importance of literacy is a passion for many who hold a master’s degree in library science. The Greenwood Public Library is dedicated to making books a topic of conversation throughout our city through literary programming, displays, and services. That’s one of the many reasons we started our #GPLtalk podcast – a great way to start a dialogue about books and find a community of readers who maybe can’t make it into the library as often as they would like.
We would LOVE for you to be a part of that conversation! Getting involved is SUPER easy. All you have to do is subscribe to our bi-monthly podcast on iTunes or SoundCloud and listen to a fun, book-themed topic twice a month. And if you’re so inclined, leave us a message about your love of books and reading, offer us reading recommendations, or let us know your thoughts on the current topic.
