National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Jazz Master, Dr. Lonnie Smith releases his second record on Blue Note, the label he made his name on in the 1960s on a series of sides with Lou Donaldson and then on his own. All In My Mind is a live set, featuring covers and original compositions from the Hammond B-3 Master.

The Local Take is taken over by The Atlanta Fulton Public Library.  We are joined by Claudia Strange and Rachel Daniels. 

We discussed the Drag Queen Story time which was a huge success with parents and children. They also told us about the Mobile Book Bike which cycles to branches to share books, STEM experiments and all kinds of activities for children and young people.  You can contact the library to arrange for the Mobile Book Bike for your activity.
