A portable library

Dec 16, 2011

This week: we visit a bookmobile that's just for kids and talk to a singer from Madagascar with a Missouri connection.

Every Tuesday afternoon a brightly colored truck carrying about 1500 books can be found in different areas of Columbia in the hopes of targeting younger readers who might not be able to make it to the library.


Starting out in the music business can be tough—long nights of writing, perfecting and performing. Now imagine going to another country and doing it. Aina  Cook, a singer from Madagascar, talked to KBIA's Nick Gass about her life as a performer and a student in the United States.
