Joining the podcast from across “The Pond” in Wales, UK is Ian Anstice, who publishes Public Libraries News, an online publication sharing what libraries are doing in the UK. Ian was so much fun to speak with. We talked about the origins of PLN as a blog and how it developed over time. We also talk about the forced evolution of digital programming because of the pandemic and whether it is sustainable or part of the “new normal” and how we quantify attendance and satisfaction. We even speculate about a virtual beer tasting (nod to Rob Thomson, ALIA Manager NSW) and we speak about publicity in libraries and we even learn about a series of children’s books entitled Astrix and The Terry Pratchet series of books. So join us and laugh a little with our new friend Ian Anstice!
