Rock & Roll Fans, Listen Before You Vote

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

Instead of just listening, music fans currently have a chance to be heard themselves. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame recently announced its list of Nominees for 2014 and is asking the public to vote for up to 5 of the nominees. KDL is a good source to explore the music of this year’s nominees! Here are just a few examples:

Linda Ronstadt, who recently opened up about having Parkinson’s Disease as well as publishing her memoir Simple Dreams, has been nominated.

LL Cool J has also been nominated. He has stayed active since his first release in 1985, putting out Authentic just this year.

Nirvana has been nominated in their first year of eligibility, 25 years after their first release. However, it was Nevermind that really opened the way for them and other indie artists.

And don’t forget about Freegal and the chance to download tracks, such as the classic “Rumble” from nominee Link Wray. It was this guitar instrumental that inspired many guitar greats who followed.

So explore, listen and enjoy the music before you vote!

They’re Quick, They’re Easy… They’re Magazines

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

December can be a busy time, so perhaps you might like to have something light on hand to read… something like magazines!

KDL branches offer magazines on every imaginable topic, and back issues can be checked out just like books.  For instance, do you like music?  Then maybe you’d like to come pick up an issue of Rolling Stone or M Music & Musicians.  Want to keep up on current events?  Grab a copy of The Week, or perhaps The Economist if you want something a little more in-depth.  And if you like to read your magazines digitally, don’t forget about Zinio, an online magazine service available to KDL cardholders.

No matter your interest, come in and browse, you’re sure to find something.  And some magazines, such as Cooking Light, Real Simple or Crafts ‘n Things, might even come in handy for the upcoming holiday season.
