Librarians by the sea : podcast learning series

This is a collection of podcasts featuring highlights of Swampscott, MA history.
The interviews were conducted by a librarian from the Swampscott Public Library in collaboration with long time members of the Swampscott community. Recording sessions began during the Covid – 19 pandemic of 2020 when many of us needed to work from home and turned to projects that could be done by phone or online.
