The Library talks books on the radio

If you were tuned into WOSU 820 AM's Open Line with Fred Andrle on Thursday, July 31, at 10 am, you heard great summer reading recommendations from local librarians, including our very on Sandi Drake from Circulation!

(This isn't the first time a Grandview Librarian has been on Fred's show. Staffer Klova Morris was on the air with her picks in June.)

Thursday's show,  Librarians' Best Summer Reading guest-hosted by Bob Singleton, included recommendations from:

  • Worthington Library Northwest Adult Services Librarian Mandy Knapp
  • Columbus Metropolitan Library Gahanna Branch Manager Mary Kelly
  • Grandview Heights Public Library Circulation Services Staff Member Sandi Drake

Great job, Sandi!

Did you miss the show?
Stream (you'll need to scroll down the page) or download the show from WOSU's website archives.
