I'm having a holiday get-together between Christmas and New Year's, mostly relatives, and one special friend. I went to look through my CDs and played some, but, my very favorite CD seems to have gotten worn out. It just won't play! Bah, humbug! I've tried all the tricks, but there are two songs that just lock it up. Now I won't have my favorite holiday music for my get-together, and I was hoping to make a special announcement, with just the right mood. Can you help?

Well, it's a little late, but not hopeless. We do have lots of holiday music. Check the catalog, and see if we have the CD you love, or if there's something else you might like. If it's available, put it on hold from home. Then come right over, as materials circulate rapidly during the holiday season. We have everything from traditional Christmas carols, to more modern songs. We have all types of music from classical to rock, country to jazz.
Don't forget to search on Freegal, our online service for downloadable music.
You can also call Adult Services (ph: 630-529-1641 ext. 211) and see if they can locate the music you want at another library close to home. To borrow materials from another library, you'll have to become a "reciprocal borrower" and go pick it up, but you just never know until you ask!
And if you can't find what you want, try an old tradition, sing Christmas carols or New Year's tunes with your family!
