We're talking to people starting businesses, finding their roots, playing Dungeons & Dragons, creating community—and of course, borrowing books! Brought to you by Brooklyn Public Library.

Happiness 30-minutes at-a-time

I am loving “Borrowed”!!

Each week, I eagerly check my phone waiting for the next episode to download.

The installments (I have listened to all of them so far) are smart, funny, informative and often quite moving.

I have told my friends that “Borrowed” is a “must-listen”.

Thanks BPL for making my morning commute such a happy occasion.

Incredible New Podcast!

I’ve been listening to Borrowed since the very first episode and I’ve loved every episode! It’s informative, charming, sweet, funny, and above all else, adds kindling to the love of libraries I’ve had my whole life. I look forward to every new episode! My only complaint (and it’s a tiny one!) is that the recommended books at the end of the podcast are not included in the show notes, which is a little frustrating since I usually listen while driving. Other than that however, this podcast is absolutely wonderful and comes with my highest recommendations.
