Jan. 3 – Ferndale Library’s New Podcast “A Little Too Quiet” Debuts

Jan. 3 – Ferndale Library’s New Podcast “A Little Too Quiet” Debuts

FERNDALE, MI — The Ferndale Library will debut a new podcast on all major podcast apps this winter. “A Little Too Quiet” is a new and exciting way for the library staff to engage with patrons. The enlightening (as well as entertaining) content, produced in-house, might otherwise be formatted for an on-site program or event, but will instead be delivered in audio form. The library also hopes to use the podcast to connect to the grander book-loving community worldwide, kicking off with a premiere episode that features Bird Box author Josh Malerman on Jan. 3.

The podcast’s name, “A Little Too Quiet,” is a nod to the fact that libraries everywhere have evolved beyond the longstanding perception that they are silent institutions meant only for peaceful reading where librarians sternly shush anyone speaking above hushed tones. That’s just not the case anymore, and the new podcast aims to demonstrate the ways in which the Ferndale Library and libraries everywhere have evolved into 21st-century community centers where, yes, occasional loudness is more than accepted.

Episodes will showcase unique library resources, promote library programs and events, and feature discussions on literary news, the special experience of book clubs, the ongoing outreach efforts of Youth Services Librarians, and the history of the library. This coming year, 2020, marks the 90th anniversary of the Ferndale Library. There will be content that unveils the history of the building, while also engaging patrons to share their favorite memories and experiences about the Ferndale Library. There will also be lots of local author interviews, starting with Malerman in the premiere episode, as well as conversations with Michael Zadoorian, Kathe Koja, and more.

“A Little Too Quiet” also serves as a way for patrons to stay engaged with their library during the snowier months when travel is more challenging. Now, library patrons can hear from their library while they’re at home, at the gym, or on the go, just by putting in some earbuds. Along with being hosted at the library’s main website, “A Little Too Quiet” will also be available on iTunes, Spotify, and Google Podcasts.
