July 11, 2016

Do you believe in Bigfoot? How about the Beast of Whitehall? This episode treads into mysterious territory as Liz, Cody and Chris welcome Kelli Nikola and Curtis Bower, from Akron-Summit County Public Library, who discuss an upcoming cryptozoology program. The event, which takes place at Main Library July 23, features a Bigfoot investigator and a local filmmaker/journalist who studies elusive creatures, like the Minerva Monster and the Beast of Whitehall, spotted in Upstate New York. Curtis and Kelli, librarians in the Science & Technology Division of the Library, also discuss what compelled them to careers as librarians and how the changing scope of technology affects their jobs.
