Need to cool off this summer or just head to a cool place with so much going on? If you think a library is just about books, think again! In this episode of the Experience We-Ha podcast, Ryan and I talk with Martha Church, who has been at the West Hartford Public Library for over 40 years and Director since 2015. With hundreds of programs and events held throughout the year for everyone from 1 to 100, the West Hartford Public Library is ever-evolving, even in this digital age, as a social hub of learning and enrichment in the community.
