Libraries are Hallowed Ground, with special guest Aaron Whitfield
Show Notes

 In today's episode, we're showing some love to our libraries. My guest is Aaron Whitfield and he is a library professional. I sit down to chat with him about his mission - to promote libraries as a necessary part of a community. They not only provide a place of learning, reading and other similar resources, but libraries can also provide a place of refuge, community, and acceptance. 

There's a lot of love for libraries in this episode, and Aaron shares some amazing stories and insights from his time working there.
