Owl Radio
Skidompha Library is known for charting new territory in services for our community. Among our newest and most exciting is Owl Radio, which offers an entirely new kind of service for readers--and listeners. Owl Radio offers three resources:

Owl Podcasts
Podcasts are digital audio files made available on the Internet for downloading to a computer or portable media player, and are often available as a series. By using the voice talents of Skidompha staff members and friends, we're recoding our own podcasts. Skidompha's podcasts are available 24/7 anywhere in the world with an internet connection. They feature a rich variety of material, from children's book classics, to Jazz, Rock, Blues, and Oldies programs produced by local professional DJs, commentary and humor, and more. 

Click here for our podcasts on our PodOmatic page  or  visit the iTunes Store (our content is free!)

We'll let you know when new recordings become available for listening in Skidompha's Happenings newsletter and on our Owl Radio Facebook page.

Have a particular children's book you'd like us to record--or one you'd like to record (it's really easy)? Let us know by sending arequest to

Owl on Facebook 
In addition to Skidompha's home page on Facebook, Owl Radio has its own Facebook page, featuring announcements whenever a new podcast is published, posts about local musical, art, and theater happenings, literary quotes, book news, and commentary.

Streaming Audio
Skidompha's Owl Radio streaming content is our very own internet broadcast radio channel. We welcome you to tune in to our digital musical library of music. Our overnight stream tends to be quieter, with emphasis on Classical, Choral, and New Age selections. Our daytime selections include more Rock, Pop, Jazz, Big Band, Folk, and Classical music. As we grow, we'll feature more themed and special live programming throughout the day. We're also looking into streaming to another third-party online streaming service, so stay tuned for more. Meanwhile, tune in and let us know what you think.
