Okay, I know this will be a hard sell but NPR isn't just talking heads. They also really know their music. The "R" is for radio after all. Check out NPR's music page, you are sure to find something you like.

KCRW could be the coolest radio station ever. It's the community radio station out of Santa Monica College, California. WARNING - listening to KCRW will cause you to know about music months before it hits the airwaves in the Northeast. Inducing boredom with local radio stations and hooking on you KCRW for life. Yeah it is that good.


Gaming @ Your Library

Did you know?  You can check out Wii, Xbox & PS3 games at Rockland Public Library!  Find the video game collection (and teen books, audiobooks, magazines & music) in the Library Teen Zone.  The loan period for video games is one week, and the fine is $1 per day if returned late.
