DC Public Library Podcast
Hear book talks, conversations, special presentations, stories about the happenings in the library, the Labs, and Washington, D.C. and much more! This show is recorded from the Labs Recording Studio at the historic, modernized, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in downtown Washington, D.C., and is made possible, in part, by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

In this series, Tachalla and Anne offer a soundtrack to some of your -- and their -- favorite books.

Check It Or Leave It
