A big Kiss to all of our friends who stopped by for our Summer Record Sale the past few weeks. Our sales help us prune the collection, and are great fun. Our next Sale begins Dec 9th.
And just what are we up to this summer? Well mostly working on the Great78Project in partnership with the Internet Archive and George Blood LP, and preparing to digitize our 400,000 CDs. So no vacations for us – maybe just a slowdown at the end of August.
Need a summer read? Like music? You can now borrow about 3,000 of ARC’s books, electronically online, like any public library.
Only one person at a time can borrow, and they evaporate after two weeks.
Don’t forget to donate LPs + CDs + 78s and help us build our collections. And we can only continue our work if you remember to join the ARC and become a Friend.
Here’s a bit about the Great78Project and a link for you to listen to these great early recordings. We have now digitized and posted 18,000+ 78s – only 200,000 more to go!
