Thing #21 Podcasts
Podcasts are huge; they're advertised on NPR all the time. I have occasionally listened to an NPR show via a podcast when I've missed the original airing on the radio. The technology is so customer-focused; I love the idea behind the name: personal, on-demand, "broad"casting. I found a couple of libraries that use podcasts in basic, but useful and effective ways. Pierce county library uses Podcasts to advertise books and to educate parents and caregivers on Ready to Read skills. So 2.0! I'm surprised that CML doesn't do anything with podcasts. A cheap (read FREE) way to connect to customers.
