How Libraries Work

This week, we’re learning all about how libraries work with a BOP listener, Carley! Carley has worked in public libraries for over ten years and has a Master of Library and Information Science and is the host of the Tales from a Bibliophile podcast.


We ask Carley about her career journey, a typical day in her job, how books get purchased, how funding works, books bans, and more!
