We want your music!!!

Once again, as in the olden days of 2008/9, I am asking for the music community's help. I've put the word out about the library's local music collection and I'm hoping this will result in an uptick in our donations of local music CDs. It's no secret that I've been busy, and I've had less time to go out and collect music for the library, so I'm reaching out to musicians, fans, labels to send some local music lovin' our way. Donations will have to be in CD format to be included in the collection, and should include: cover art and track listing. Receipts will be given at donor's request. You can either send your donation to: Ferndale Public Library, ATTN: Kelly Bennett, 222 E. Nine Mile Road, Ferndale, MI 48220 or simply drop them by the front desk. I can't wait to see what we get! Thanks for your help!

Here's a blurb about the collection in the Detroit News and an article in the Oakland Press which includes a bit more about the role local music plays here at FPL.

Speaking of which....Next Friday, February 3rd, avid library lovers, The High Strung will grace our Community  Room once again. Drew Bardo of The Questions will go on at 7, and THS will play at 8. Make it a part of your Blues Fest weekend!
