Thing #17 Say What?!

Podcasting in libraries is HUGE! Thanks to this Thing, we have learned about super easy to use programs that allow us to chat up a topic and save it to share for others.

The Boulder Public Library (CO) has a Teen Webcast page but I found a variety of PODCASTS there, created with Gcast. What a great idea and way to encourage teens to contribute to our branches.

The Kankakee Public Library (IL) hosts a podcasts & vodcasts page. Their site shares a wide variety of recordings, including an author visit.

Here’s an example of how a podcast is being used to promote a county-wide book read at the Pierce County Public Library (WA).
