In November’s Library Chat Podcast, we begin a new format where we invite a different library staff member to join us as a special guest. They will choose the topic to be discussed during Library Chat and we will talk to them about what they do on the library team, as well as books and podcasts around their chosen topic.
For November’s Library Chat, Tim West, the library’s Digital Recording Specialist/Studio Manager, joins us to talk about the topic of music. Tim discusses his work producing digital audio books for the library collection, working with our volunteer narrators and his love of music.
