An Avian flu outbreak has killed more than 6 million turkeys in the U.S. this year. That, plus inflation, could mean Thanksgiving will be a bit more expensive than usual for American families.


The Memory Lab

The Jacksonville Public Library is offering a new service: do-it-yourself digitization. The library’s brand new Memory Lab gives residents free access to equipment that will allow them to scan and restore family photos and slides, access old floppy disks and transfer VHS tapes, cassettes, records and more to digital formats that can then be shared online.

The Memory Lab is on the fourth floor of the Main Library and is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The lab is free to library cardholders. Guest passes and nonresident cards are available for a fee.

Guest: Laura Minor, manager of special collections at the Jacksonville Public Library.

The Move

Toni Smailagic of Cre8Jax has been photographing Jacksonville events, and the people who attend them, for years. He also puts together a list of the best events and places to check out and shares them online.

Local multimedia personality Catalina Selvagn can often be found at these events alongside Toni. She joined us for our biweekly segment “The Move” to share their picks for this week and next.

Guest: Catalina Selvagn, local multimedia personality.
