About
These are not the kinds of stories that you'll find on our shelves. These are our own tales of the real and the surreal.
We talk to our staff to uncover their best, worst, and most hilarious moments at the library and share what libraries are really about - who we are, who we serve, and why it's important.

Episode 3: Big Data vs. Little Data
What drives decision making at the library? We take a dive into the world of data and statistics with Alison Clarke, the Performance Measures and Data Coordinator at Brampton Library. What stories do the numbers tell us? What is evidence based decision making? And most importantly: how, in fact, does someone "concatenate" something?

Episode 2: O.G. (Original Google)
We sit down with Rebecca Raven, the CEO of Brampton Library, to explore what librarianship looked like before the likes of Google, and what it means to work in an ever adapting public institution. Also, catch some really important discussion about ready reference, pre-pinterest picture collections and fish taxidermy. Yep, you read that correctly.  The This American Life Podcast episode Rebecca refers to in our discussion.

Episode 1: Library Stereotypes and Library DJs
In our premier episode of Brampton Library Stories, we talk to a veteran of our library system, Mike A.  Mike helps us take a look back at what the library used to be, and gives us some insight into what it means to be "a guy" in the context of the librarian stereotype. We will also share the official moment that Mike got his very own DJ name - and since it's our first ever recording, we say things like "stay tuned" a lot.
