In our latest episode, Tremain Jackson & Jessica Reyes are tackling the following topics when it comes to the library world:

  • Library Events: None to cover this week because it's the week of Thanksgiving. May you all spend it with family and friends and have a great one!
  • News From Our Library: We have a lot to tell you about that's changed at the Abilene Public Library including the retirement of the library director, progress on the Abilene Heritage Square project, and a new website for the library and city coming in December!
  • Technology Issue of the Week: We bumped this segment this week because we knew we were going to run long. It'll return next week.
  • New Movie Releases: We'll be talking about three new movie releases for the day that you should look for checking out at your local public library including "Angel Has Fallen," "Where'd You Go, Bernadette," and "Don't Let Go."
  • News Stories Featuring Libraries: We have so much news to cover this week that should certainly get under your skin. We'll tell you about how thousands of students in Houston ISD never check out a book from their school libraries; a library had to cancel their Drag Queen Storytime after receiving violent threats; an ex-librarian embezzles over $260,000 from her library; director of the Lincoln Library fired by governor for loaning an original Gettysburg Address to a pop-up museum of Glenn Beck; three guns found in a bathroom in Phoenix library, fully loaded; library debates the removal of "Prince and Knight" children's books, which got the attention of the ALA's Office of Intellectual Freedom; director of the library in Leander, TX fired for hosting Family Pride Storytimes, Mayor blames her and library staff.

This podcast is presented by the Technology/Multimedia Department as a weekly show to provide you with a fun outlet on keeping up with your library, and libraries in the nation...in our own way. New shows added each Tuesday so be sure to follow and subscribe.
