New "Squirrels & Shiny Things" Episode

Squirrels and Shiny Things News Icon

Gear up for another solo show as Tremain Jackson takes the helm while Jessica Reyes is out on vacation.  There may be a little less banter, but we still have some great content to give to everyone including a lot of news coverage to make up for last week's slow news cycle.

  • Library Events: There's a good number of programs to take advantage of including the knitting club, a family coloring club session, some holiday STEAM fun for youth, and a great family movie showing.
  • New DVD Releases: This week we'll be telling you about the DVD releases to look out for at your local public library including "Downton Abbey," "Abominable," "Ad Astra" (my pick of the week), and "Rambo: Last Blood."
  • Libraries in the News: Take a listen at some of the news stories I've found to dish on this week including a stabbing at a library that led to a 9-hour manhunt; Los Angeles Public Library System to eliminate late fees in Spring 2020; burning of banned books in China; Seattle Public Library in spotlight over "controversial" event; libraries in Florida lending out colorblind glasses; library in Las Vegas to offer sensory-friendly movie showings; Boston Public Library looking to build apartments over select library branches.
