Join Melina Zuniga for Episode 8 of Voices of Chandler, The Podcast. If you’re like Melina and you were a big fan of the Arthur cartoon in the 90s, you’ll love this episode. If you recall, Arthur loved going to the library and Melina did too. Libraries in Chandler have evolved from places where you check out to books to places that offer online content and new technology, like 3D printing. Many of the programs at the library are created by volunteers.

Episode 8 Highlights:

  • Lisa Aquafredda talks to a Chandler resident who has volunteered at the library for 35 years to learn how it has changed during her recent #GoPlayChandler segment.
  • How much money can you save when you use the library? Hint…it’s a lot.
  • When you picture library resources, I am sure you don’t imagine up-to-date technology but now you should! Stacy Akahoshi from the Downtown Chandler Library describes the newest lab, called The Makery, located inside their building. Find out what they have available and how you can reserve these tools for yourself. Plus, hear from a student user, Docky, and a business owner, Victoria, about why they love the expansion, too.
