If you want book reviews, don't listen here. The mission of the James L. Hamner Public Library is to facilitate connections that provide free learning opportunities. That means almost anything is relevant to the library. In Connections, library workers take advantage of this and talk about whatever interests them. Sometimes, they even talk about the library. Dance, religion, why the library thinks you're a terrible person (spoiler... it doesn't... usually), almost anything is up for grabs.
