Beginning January 31, the YA and adult music collection will be moved to Rooker Library and remain there until after the renovation is complete. Once Rooker is ready to receive everything, the music collection will be suppressed, so it will not be visible to patrons for check out or holds. The shelving will be moved to Rooker, followed by the music collection. Once everything is set back up and accessible, the collection will be unsuppressed. This process should take around a month to complete. In the meantime, we suggest checking out Freegal; this app gives patrons access to 24/7 streaming as well as 5 free song downloads per month.
