Ames Free Library Podcasting Studio, that I helped create, to be part of State House exhibit…

This was taken the other day at the Ames Free Library, Queset House, William M. Ames Podcasting Studio which I helped create.

Each year selected libraries and selected projects such as this one showcase something that is exciting for legislators and can act as a model for other libraries to follow.
