Did you enjoy the Grammy Awards last night?

Do you like exploring new music?   There’s no better way to keep up with the ever-changing world of music than to grab some of the Grammy winners, pull up a chair, and have a listen!   The Watertown Free Public Library is proud to offer a large and diverse collection of music CDs, as well as an up-to-the-minute digital music collection available through HOOPLA.   What’s really great is that music available through HOOPLA is always available – that’s right: no more waiting to get your hands on the hottest titles!

This morning, we eagerly reviewed the list of Grammy winners, and between HOOPLA and CD, we have just about all of them. Rest assured, the couple we did not have, have now been ordered!  

We’re really excited about new music, and we’re thrilled to offer HOOPLA to our patrons. Watertown residents can sign up for HOOPLA from the “Downloads and Technology” area of our website.   It’s fast, it’s free, and they have a lot of hot music!
