Hey podcast fans! You may not know this but Syosset Public Library has been podcasting for about two years. The podcast episodes feature interesting conversation on a wide variety of subjects – not just about books and reading. Listen to our librarians interview authors, Syosset citizens and celebrities, and experts on all sorts of topics. Here is a sampling of episodes that also happen to be our most listened to offerings:
Lovett, podcaster supreme (Pod Save America), former speech-writer for President Obama, and Syosset alum lends us his voice and humor! Lovett joins us to share his favorite memories of Syosset and how he went from mathematics major to a political speech writer.
In the wake of COVID-19 libraries, educators, authors, and publishers are coming together to find new ways to reach the public. Skip Dye of Penguin Random House graciously agreed to chat with us about the recent policy released by his company which will allow us to use remote services and social media to provide Storytimes and beyond to our communities as we practice responsible social distancing.
Sy-Con Presents Bricks Rock was a fun filled event at our library! In this episode, we sat down with three members of I LUG NY, the NY Tri-State LEGO Users group to chat about growing up and holding on to what were once considered “childish things” as a way to make connections with others — and where libraries can fit into this philosophy.
