After 7 years of sharing free music streaming and downloads with our community, the Denver Public Library will be retiring the volumedenver.org website on Tuesday, October 19.
The decision to discontinue this service was difficult but necessary. The music landscape has changed a lot in the last few years with the ubiquity of other streaming services, including free options like SoundCloud and YouTube that have a much larger reach and features difficult to match. That competition is no doubt a large factor in our steadily decreasing streaming and download numbers. Staffing and technical considerations also played a part in this decision.
It’s been a great ride. Thanks to everyone who contributed to this project as an artist or a listener.
