This episode of The Audissey is released during the COVID-19 Coronavirus Statewide Stay-At-Home Order. These segments were pre-recorded before library services were suspended and although all library locations are closed until further notice we hope you'll enjoy learning about our normally scheduled services (and get excited for when we're able to offer them again). Enjoy our boy Brevin banter with Dave and Bethany as he details one of our favorite services, Words on Wheels! Meet Logan, super cool gamer and Library Assistant talk about rad video games and the sweet branch locations she frequents (we're lookin' at you, Fruita and Gateway Branches!).
We look forward to getting back to our regularly scheduled services once we're over the risk of spreading COVID-19. Stay safe, check out our other online resources, and binge our podcast while you're stuck at home!
