You hear a lot about restaurants and retail stores dealing with closures because of the COVID19 crisis. But lots of other businesses are being impacted, too, including local libraries, many of which have been closed for months.

So this year, Siouxland Libraries is trying something new. Librarian Amber Pettman joins us via Live Zoom to tell us how the library is teaming up with Sioux Falls Parks & Recreation to offer a combined program as we all imagine a different kind of summer activity.
