State Senator Julie Morrison of Illinois’s 29th District is our guest this month. Julie discusses her career path, how best to get involved in local government, and how she gets some of her ideas for legislation (hint: visit her office!).

Other segments on our April show include information from youth librarian Julia Frederick about the library’s new Discovery Kits available for checkout. Then, in our brand new segment, our “Local History Corner,” librarian Anne Jamieson shares two hilarious spring-time animal stories from Deerfield’s past. The animal theme continues with our staff picks segment: Acquisitions Assistant Tom Walsh recommends The Heart of a Lion: A Lone Cat’s Walk Across America by William Stolzenburg.
