Library Chat Podcast: October 2022

October’s Library Chat Podcast, is a special “Live” episode in the spirit of October, Halloween and the spooky season.  We decided to do a ghost hunt in our Iowa Department for the Blind (IDB) building.  The IDB’s building has long and rich history and there has been a lot of unexplained occurrences, sightings and feelings throughout, so we thought we should investigate.  Joining us for the podcast is a special guest Dave Coulson, former IDB Facilities Engineer, to do an investigation and tour of the building.
