Overview:

In this podcast, I am trying to get the students excited about coming into the Library.  I am trying to promote library usage by the students. I want the students to see the library as a place they can come, visit, and  learn about new and exciting things. I want the students to see that the library can be a fun place, not just a dull and uneventful room.  I want the students to visualize a happy, relaxing, informative room that they can't wait to come and visit.
