188½ – Live from New York ( … Library Association’s 2018 Conference)

Miss Information hosted a special themed trivia night for the attendees of the New York Library Association (NYLA) 2018 Conference in Rochester– and we happened to be recording! In this all-quiz episode, pit your knowledge about New York and libraries against some formidable librarians [and pretend you’re back in a crowded bar]. Cheers!
