Denver Public Library has taken on the role of making available & curating local music—great idea, nice-looking site https://t.co/wd7K6zZnua— Dan Cohen (@dancohen) August 11, 2014
Hat tip to Dan Cohen’s Twitter feed. How exciting. I love this idea! Does your library do anything like this with music, art, or any other media?
