Vinyl in the library
Vinyl in the library

The Brooklyn Public Library in New York has expanded the range of services offered. Now visitors can use the huge vinyl catalog. Readers' ticket holders can borrow up to three records for up to three weeks. Thousands of records in house, disco and hip-hop styles are now stored in the main branch of the library network at Grand Army Plaza, and listening stations with turntables are also equipped. The collection contains the world's most leading artists, including Depeche Mode.

Describing the program as a "pilot project," the library said on its website that it plans to expand the collection in the future. Starting in September, the library also hosts a six-week workshop on djing and production for teenagers in partnership with the non-profit organization Building Beats.
