Multnomah County Library Podcast with BABYMOUSE Co-creator Matthew Holm

I recently visited Ronit Fahl of the Multnomah County Library. Ronit works in their secret headquarters, where they acquire new books, label and catalogue them (sometimes in foreign languages), etc. She showed me the impressive trans-shipping area where a jumble of crates filled with books on interlibrary loan (intra-library? not sure what you call it when it's all within the same library system) come in by truck, are tagged with obscure codes, get sorted out into new bins, and then shipped back out to their final destinations.

Then she sat me down for a podcast interview, in which I field questions submitted by local elementary-school students--about becoming an illustrator, our work process, and my feelings about the color pink. Go listen now!

Then, come check out both me AND Jenni at the Hollywood Branch of the Multnomah County Library at 6:30pm on Tuesday, February 23, 2010.
