Knowledge Is Power With A License To Read/Library Card

I was flipping through the CD collection at the BPL in Copley Square today when a curious kid no older than ten caught up to my perusing area in the Popular Music Section.

“Have you seen a My Chemical Romance CD?” The boy asked.

“No, but if I do I’ll let you know,” I replied in all sincerity.

Unfortunately, nothing to be found. However, online, there’s quite a catalog listing for MCR:

And it looks like their live album should have been there…

If that isn’t enough to get you to pick up a library card, perhaps the sheer number of albums by James Brown, Ray Charles, Nina Simone, The Beatles, and any number of indie rock, hip-hop, classical, jazz, blues, showtunes, and world music are available to pick up and listen to. And the book collection ain’t half bad either…
