Show Notes

This month's Library Chat Podcast is a special episode for us.  The library staff was asked to present at the annual meeting of the Friends of the Iowa Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped in April.  We were asked to present on the extraordinary lengths the staff went through to keep the Library functioning during the pandemic. In addition, the we spoke about the library receiving the 2020 National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled Network Library of the Year Award.

The presentation by the library staff reflects on what was accomplished by the library over these two years and what we learned from the challenges and opportunities those years presented. It is an amazing story that we wanted to share as part of our May Library Chat Podcast by including the audio recording of our presentation.  We would also like to extend a huge thank you our Friends of the Library for giving us the opportunity to tell our story.
