What happens when George "Scrooge" P. Burdell says "bah humbug" to libraries? Why, he gets a talking to from the ghost of Dorothy Crosland, of course!

In honor of libraries across the world, and in the Dickensian holiday spirit, Lost in the Stacks (also known by the acronym LITS) presents for you a radio drama: a “LITSmas Carol.”

In keeping with the finest of radio plays, there's action, adventure, romance, flashbacks, cheesiness, sonic peril, funny voices, words from our sponsors, and yes, musical interludes, orchestrated by yours truly, the librarians.

So find a cozy study carrel or grab your colleagues and a keg of hot cocoa and huddle around the reference desk radio to enjoy this tale of glad tidings and good library cheer.

Happy Libraries to All!
