'Borrowed' from Brooklyn Public Library in New York shares the stories happening between the shelves that hold the more than 4 million books in its collection.

Like any good library it has reading recommendations, but it's not all about the books!

Recorded in the library's own recording studio that you can book with your library card, 'Borrowed' also celebrates the other things libraries do for their communities...like helping to record and archive local history.

We play some of an episode of Borrowed called 'Oil Spills and Moldy Paper' hosted by Krissa Corbett Cavouras and Felice Belle, and thanks to the show's writer and producer Virginia Marshall for helping us share that with you.
