Libraries are Rooms of Requirements

This podcast explores libraries.

Libraries aren’t just for books.

They’re often spaces that transform into what you need them to be: a classroom, a cyber café, a place to find answers, a quiet spot to be alone. It’s actually kind of magical. This week, we have stories of people who roam the stacks and find unexpected things that just happen to be exactly what they required.

Libraries are magic!
