Every three weeks, join librarian hosts Thad Hartman, Lissa Staley, Miranda Ericsson and Autumn Friedli with special guests from the library and community. In each interview, the guest makes recommendations for one square from the “Reading Bingo”  card. Listeners are encouraged to read along throughout 2017 and mark their own Reading Bingo cards. Use the podcasts, show notes, book displays in the library and book lists in the library catalog to discover what other people are reading and recommending.
