Welcome to Community Conversations! A series of conversations Mesa County Libraries staff has with passionate and informed community members. On our first ever Community Conversations episode, Bethany and Emmi sat down with the Tremaine Jackson, Head Football Coach at Colorado Mesa University. Hired in late 2019, Coach Jackson has navigated a wide variety of changes not only related to how he adapted running practice of a team of 100+ players due to COVID-19, but on a community level opening up a dialogue of being uncomfortable, participating in peaceful protests, and raising the acknowledgement of racism in the Grand Valley. Settle in for a conversation about race relations and bias and how we as a community can use our resources to learn, discover, create, and connect with everyone around us. Thank you Coach Jackson for an educational, kind, and much needed conversation!

Is Bethany's mom a saint? Our sources say yes. Bethany and her mom Tami coordinated an effort to manufacture masks for family, friends, and co-workers during this pandemic. This is an extremely compassionate feat for a teacher navigating distance learning (Tami) and full-time library assistant/grad student (Bethany) and those of us who were gifted masks are extremely grateful for the act of kindness. Thank you Bethany and Tami!

Trevor Adams, Library Associate in our Youth Services department, is a collage artist in his free time!

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!

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
