IN THE SECOND EPISODE OF THE GATHER OMAHA PODCAST, WE SIT DOWN TO TALK WITH THREE AWESOME LADIES CHARGED WITH CURATING INFORMATION AND ACCESS FOR OUR COMMUNITY.
Our guests for this episode are Micki Dietrich, Wendy Townley, and Rebecca Stavick. Micki works with the Omaha Public Library on community engagement efforts. Wendy works with the Omaha Public Library Foundation, raising funds for special projects at the Library. Rebecca is leading the new DoSpace project here in Omaha. an innovative digital library project opening very soon.
There are all kinds of ways for you to get involved and support these organizations. Go check out your local library branch, spend some time at DoSpace, and be sure to reach out to these ladies with questions about support. The library needs our civic support to continue to grow and flourish in Omaha.
