George & Joan, Thinking Out Loud: The Library as Non-Partisan Convener

This George & Joan podcast came about as a result of a conversation they had at ALA Midwinter with Gina Millsap, director of the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library. The library acted as neutral convener of a special program that helped citizens interested in running for local offices gain a working knowledge of the political process. The library didn’t actually present the program: they brought in the folks representing all the pieces of the process to discuss how it’s all done.
