Your Library Podcast S4E1 Virtual Programs

In the first episode of season four of Your Library Podcast, we highlight the Library’s virtual programs, including Career Online High School, Off the Shelf, and our new Ask an Expert page.

In a previous episode of Your Library Podcast, we learned about the Library’s Career Online High School program and heard from members of the graduating class. Through Career Online High School, St. Louis Public Library offers adults, age 25 and older, the opportunity to earn a national accredited high school diploma and career certificate online. Today, we are joined by Adult Outreach Supervisor, Susan Davids, who recently caught up with a few Career Online High School alums, Miranda, Toni, and Latonya.

Next we hear from Director of Central Services, Angie Miraflor, about our new Ask an Expert page. This page features the different ways customers can connect to the Library, including our new Book an Expert form. Use this form to request assistance with genealogy, readers advisory, nonprofits, and more!

Finally, we hear about Off the Shelf, a children’s web series designed to help children cope during this global pandemic. We are joined by the Library’s Manager of Community Engagement Aarya Locker, costume designer Samantha Hayes, actor Tiéler Cheatem, and scenic artist Andy Cross to learn more about the vision behind these wonderful series! Check out the first episode here!
