EP 18: Asian American & Pacific Islander Reads
Nicole and Tori talk about upcoming National Library Week Plans, including Poetry in the Garden at Munson and Brothers Trading Post on Friday, April 9 at 5 p.m., a marathon to end out the week, new DVD Binge Boxes coming to the library starting April 4th, and even the annual Edible Book Festival.
