003: Your Hometown Librarians

In this episode, Hazlett and Ruby talk Lawrence history! We discuss where in the library you can find books about Lawrence, what our local history room has to offer, what it means to be a hometown librarian, and why Lawrence past is also Lawrence… now times… By the way, 978.165 is actually the call number for Douglas County. But Lawrence is a big part of Douglas County, so we’re calling it a win.

Oranges & Peaches is recorded in the SOUND+VISION Studio, opens a new window at Lawrence Public Library. Thanks to Joel Bonner, opens a new window for composing our jingle and editing the show.
