Volume: A Local Music Project is Live!

Volume

The Denver Public Library is excited to announce the launch of Volume, our new music website featuring local bands and musicians. DPL has always been about reaching out to support our community, and we're looking to reinforce that goal by offering our customers free streaming music and downloads. Most of this unique content is not available in big box stores, so Volume steps in to fill that gap by supporting local artists and connecting the people of Denver to our vibrant music scene.

Streaming Music Databases - Send-to-Mobile

Send to mobile device

Music Online and all of the Library's streaming music collections now offer Send-to-Mobile functionality. What this means is that you can now send an audio track, album, or playlist from our streaming collections to your mobile device to listen to later. The item that you send stays on your device for 48 hours.

Go to Music Online or any of our streaming music databases and look for a cell phone icon ("Send-to-Mobile") next to each track, album, or playlist. Wherever you see that icon you can click it to obtain a “shortlink” to send and enable playback on your mobile device.

There are several ways to send this link:

All you need is a Denver Public Library card, an Internet connection, and Adobe Flash Player 9 or higher (free).
