On Monday, January 18, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., we will be replacing core Library IT hardware. This maintenance will disable access to our website, web catalog, most eLibrary, and Research eResources, (including some Axis360 service). Maintenance is scheduled to last six hours. Note: to ensure full access to Axis 360 during our maintenance downtime, log out and log back into the Axis 360 app Monday morning, January 18, shortly before 9:30 a.m. Thank you for your patience as we maintain and upgrade our systems.
NPR was created in 1970, three years after Congress passed the Public Broadcasting Act and established the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Signing the act into law, President Lyndon B. Johnson said, "We in America have an appetite for excellence . . . we want most of all to enrich man's spirit." Today NPR produces and distributes programming that reaches more than 26 million listeners weekly. More than 900 stations nationwide broadcast NPR programming. From the turmoil of the Vietnam era to a delightful visit with the riotously funny Dame Edna Everage, join hosts Susan Stamberg (1970s), Noah Adams (1980s), Renee Montagne (1990s), and Guy Raz (2000s) for an unforgettable journey through the first forty years of NPR. This commemorative collection overflows with thought-provoking commentaries, award-winning journalism and humor from the public radio programs that have become an essential part of our lives: All Things Considered, Morning Edition, Weekend Edition, Tell Me More, Fresh Air and much more.FEATURING: David SedarisChris RockDame EdnaTerry GrossLittle RichardRed BarberIra GlassCar Talk's Tom and Ray MagliozziAnd many more.
