About Us

BKLYN Mixtape is a podcast from the Shelby White and Leon Levy Information Commons at Brooklyn Public Library. It is a show about everyday creators and makers just like you living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Listen to interviews, music, and audio shorts created in the Info Commons by staff and patrons. Hear how Brooklynites create and what inspires them as artists, print-makers, musicians, podcasters, story tellers, poets, writers, zine designers, coders and more. We're asking, what will you make today?
