Are you a fan of YPRL's Book Valet service? We have great news for you. We're taking the magic of Book Valet and bringing it to audio format.

Come behind the scenes with YPRL Coordinators Lefa Singleton-Norton, Patrick Jovaras and Sarah Schmidt who have created a dynamic podcast just for you! The art of recommending the right book can be an interesting journey through the nearly and the not-quite-right on the path to the perfect pick.

Our team will take a Book Valet survey and discuss how they selected just the right books to suit each reader and their tastes.

This weekly podcast has been fast-tracked to help solve reader's reading conundrums during the Corona shutdown, with a teaser trailer available shortly.

Your hosts will provide YPRL members with reading recommendations of both new and old books and each episode will be accompanied by a reading list so listeners can find all the great books that they discuss.
