'Librarians Unhushed'

Tune in to library staff members Amanda and Bailley on the Bella Vista Public Library's new podcast, "Librarians Unhushed." These two gals are book lovin,' Diet Coke drinkin' chatterboxes. On the podcast, they ramble on about books, movies, life in a library and anything else that comes to mind. Podcast episodes will be published on the second Monday of the month. You'll be able to find our podcast on our website and most podcast listening services.
