Are you ready for some great new local music? I hope so, because we've just finished reviewing the second round of submissions for Volume, our local music site. We received over 60 submissions this time around, and have chosen the albums that will be used. We're working with the musicians on the paperwork, and on our technical end to get the music loaded. We'll be releasing new albums, every Tuesday, as we're ready (again, DRM- and $$$-free to DPL cardholders!).

GVR kids and teens snuck into the library two hours before it officially opened on Sunday, November 2. They were there to eat lots of pizza, play games and create magnificent structures in gamespace and real space (with Legos). Local teens Daniel, Raphael and Feven set up special Minecraft servers, and they also helped set out the Legos. Librarian Colleen brought out the Makey Makey and showed kids how to turn anything into a game controller.
