Rock Out to a Teen-Created Playlist

Nothing rocks more than driving around with your buddies or sitting around a friend’s room listening to the music you love and talking about artists who interest you – except maybe if that music is free! Well, break out your library card because we got the free tunes you love.

Also the library is a great place to try new artists because you won’t have buyer’s remorse if you don’t like ‘em.

Here’s what members of our Teen Advisory Board have been checking out lately. Remember you too can enjoy CDs from our music collection and downloadable tracks from our digital music library, Freegal.
