More Than Research and Romance Novels: MCPL Offers Today's Hottest Music!
I had one job when it came to the fourteen hour road trip I took with my best friend this summer: playing DJ.

I made my decision and popped the CD in the player; the upbeat dance melodies of Lady Gaga blared from the speakers.
Working at the library has opened my eyes to so many things. Who knew they had so many movies and CD's? I've found so many movies here that are practically new...no need for Redbox or Blockbuster anymore! Many people think the library isn't meant for teenagers, they need to rethink! FREE internet access, FREE movies, FREE CD's....Its practically MADE for teenagers! I encourage all young adults to come check it out!

As a mom of two young kids, I have sung "The Wheels on the Bus" many times with my children. They also have enjoyed listening to this song on CD along with other kid songs. And as a mom who doesn’t sing very well, I like to listen to others who are more talented. But as you know, CDs can get very expensive and take up space.
Wolf used to love the Boxcar Children. Now he plays bass for the Chariot. The Chariot has a new CD coming out on November 22nd, and a new tour that begins November 12 at the Blue Nile in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Here is what Wolf had to say when I asked about the recent doings of the Chariot and his Halloween costume.

I would say "the holidays are slowly creeping up on us", but I’d be wrong. It seems that this year has flown by, and once again, some of us are rushing to finish those to-do lists before Thanksgiving and Christmas. Whether you’re running errands, finishing your lists, or enjoying the company of friends and family, you should grab a little music to help set the mood. The library has a wide selection of music: from country, pop and rock, to orchestral, holiday classics, and every genre in between.
