The Program Room Podcast

logoMonty produced "The Program Room" to help librarians prepare for the 2009 "Be Creative" summer reading theme. He is no longer making new episodes but the podcast is still available and is still a valuable free resource for any librarian who does children's programming. The seven episodes and additional interviews explore music, storytelling, visual art, theater, and all the different ways you can help kids experience the arts!
