Two Podcasts Created By and For School Librarians. If you had asked me about podcasts a year ago, I would have told you that I had tried listening to a few, but had never gotten hooked on one. I simply preferred listening to audiobooks and music.

Now I regularly listen to both of them. These podcasts keep me connected to school librarianship in a way that’s convenient and engaging. I enjoy these podcasts so much that I think school librarians everywhere should know about them.
