Volume Denver

 I am sure you have heard about downloads available to members of various libraries. Arapahoe Libraries here in Denver and Richland Library in Columbia, South Carolina are two library systems that offer free downloads to members. Denver Public Library where I work has recently started a cool project whereby they feature the work of up and coming local artists.  As far as I know this is the only large library system that is undertaking a project of this magnitude.

 The project was started for several reasons. First and foremost, Denver Public Library is all about the community and this is a good way to give back to the community that supports it so much. Second, most if not all of this music is not featured in big box stores or other avenues and so this is a great way to connect the people of Denver to the vibrant music scene. The initial catalog will be continually updated with new fresh content. I have been listening to the artistes all week and there is a lot of talent in a variety of genres-American, Country, Folk and Hip-Hop among them.

 If you are not a library member you can still get a 30 second preview of each song. Library members can download entire songs. Check it out here!
