Not yet, of course, but I’m sure someday it will…

I was going through the children cds on day pretty randomly, and I came across the entire collection of Greg & Steve’s We All Live Together.  We had the records when I was a kid, or maybe they were tapes, but I feel like the pictures were big, so I think records.  Anyway, they’re pretty basic kid-fare, particularly of the late 70’s.  I checked them all out and, I’m admitting to nothing here, if ever questioned it never happened, but I downloaded all of them for my listen pleasure, and who knows, the listening pleasure of my future children.  And you may think they’re outdated, but I actually had downloaded one volume that my mother bought on CD a couple of years ago, and then I played it for a small child who loved it!

Anyway, it just goes to show that there are always treasures to be found in your library – and while people don’t often think of music right away when they think of the library, it really is a wonderful way to listen to all kinds of music without the financial commitment.  I’ve actually got holds on the new Beyonce and Britney Spears CDs as we speak – 2 cds I’d never buy, but I’m not opposed to listening to.  So next time you’re curious to hear something but don’t want to commit, check out your library – you just might find a lovely surprise waiting for you!
