Hi, what are you looking for?


Did You Know: There’s a Vinyl Revival at the Nyack Library?

The media and listeners of music have coined the phrase Vinyl Revival to describe the renewed interest and increase in sales of vinyl records.  In 2007, there was a small increase in sales and in the 2010’s sales have been growing at a fast rate.  It’s not just the baby boomers, yearning for their old music medium, who are responsible for the increase in sales, millennials are buying the vinyl records too.
listening station 2The Nyack Library has jumped on the bandwagon and now has a small collection of vinyl records available to circulate.  Each title can be checked out for two weeks without renewal and are only available to patrons who come into the library to check them out. Nyack is the only library in the area to circulate vinyl records and the last time they were available for circulation was 15 years ago.  The small but diverse collection available at the Nyack Library includes:  Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, Elvis Presley, Graceland by Paul Simon, Rumors by Fleetwood Mac, What’s Going On by Marvin Gaye, The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, 1989 by Taylor Swift, and Straight Outta Compton by N.W.A.  There’s sure to be something for music lovers of all genres.
In addition to circulating vinyl records, the Nyack Library now has a Listening Station with a new record/CD player in the corner of the popular materials area.  There are headphones available to check out for use in the library and patrons age 18 and over can listen to any record or CD in the collection for up to 30 minutes.
