We posted last week that the Catholic University Music Library is giving away lots of vinyl LP records. We checked in on our good buddy Thad, the CUA Music Library Assistant, and here’s what he had to say:
Shani, advertising our LPs was a great idea. People have been coming in consistently, so much so that we decided to hold on to them for one more week…We absolutely have to get them out by Friday, but please emphasize we want folks to call ahead. We had a lot of people show up without calling this week. No harm done, but it would have been a shame if someone had come a long distance to find we had closed or all the LPs had been taken.
So there you have it folks, if you haven’t had the chance to stop by and score some sweet vintage vinyl, you still have time. Most of the albums are pretty old – think 1960s and earlier, and are mostly classical, with some jazz, musical theatre, and folk thrown in too. As mentioned above, those interested in the giveaway should call the library at 202-319-5424 before heading over, for several reasons including that it is hard to find and you will potentially be walking through a construction zone, given the renovation. Please bring a bag or box to take your records away with you as they don’t have any to spare. The Library will be open from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm all week except for Friday when they are open from 9:00 am – 12:00 noon.
