HOT, NEW AND TIMELY

Long-playing vinyl records are back

Long-playing records are back at the Grandview Library!

Vinyl LPs have seen a renewed popularity in recent years. U.S. vinyl sales rose 14 percent in 2010, while CD sales were down nearly 20 percent for the fourth consecutive year.

About 20 years ago, the Library circulated thousands of vinyl LPs. Now, you can use your Grandview Library card to check out a small collection of 30 titles. 
  • Enter "vinyl LP" as a keyword search in our catalog to search our collection.
  • LPs check out for two weeks (just like CDs) and are renewable.
  • You can borrow three records at a time, and place five holds at a time.      
  • LPs must be returned to the Circulation desk - do not return them in the bookdrop!
Much of this collection was made possible with generous help from these local record stores (thank you!):

Questions? Call Circulation at 614-486-2951.


Digital music is also on the rise, accounting for nearly 26 percent of all U.S. album sales last year. Try these two great services from the Grandview Library:
