Letter from the Director: Libraries Rock

Dear Greene County Public Library friends and family,

Summer’s here and the time is right for both dancing in the streets and for our Libraries Rock Summer Reading Program. With all of our spectacular music-themed programming throughout the summer, there has never been a better time to enjoy music at the library.

You can get music from your library in more ways than ever before. We have thousands of titles on CD in genres such as rock, rap, country, and dance. We can’t wait to share our fantastic collection of music from around the world–from Armenia to Zanzibar. And that’s just the beginning. Our Hoopla downloads service offers even more music titles available for streaming and downloading.

Want to do more than just listen to music? Why not spend the summer using our ArtistWorks music-learning platform? With ArtistWorks, top musicians (even Grammy Winners) can teach you a huge variety of instruments. You could even try Lynda.com, where you can find many music-related courses, from playing the banjo to recording in a studio. Immerse yourself in music this summer, courtesy of Greene County Public Library.

What can be better than reading and rocking all summer long with the library? I’ll see you during Summer Reading and let the good times roll!

Karl Colón, Director
