Have you ever wondered what your community would look like without a public library? Odds are if you live in a rural community – like many in the Finger Lakes – your local library serves as much more than just a place to get books.

They serve as centers for activity for rural communities, and our panel discusses the impact these places have on the communities they serve.
Shannon O’Connor, director of the Edith B. Ford Memorial Library in Ovid, and Chelsea Hastings, director of the Interlaken Public Library were in-studio discussing these questions and much more on Episode #156 of Inside the FLX.
