In this episode of Your Library Podcast, we learn about the free Career Online High School program at St. Louis Public Library which gives adults an opportunity to earn their GEDs at their own pace while also gaining job skills. We talk to Susan, the Adult Outreach Supervisor who oversees the program, and we hear from members of the first graduating class as they celebrate their accomplishment.
We also go behind the scenes of the Songshapers Endangered Species Project summer camp, which took place in Creative Experience in July. Musician and camp facilitator Mark Pagano tells us about the camp and why he decided to teach kids to write songs about endangered species. We hear music from Mark as well as songs about Leaf Scaled Sea Snakes and Red Pandas produced by the campers.
Technology Director Jon Drakesmith returns for another Tech Talk segment about the Library's new reservable computers.
