Toronto Library Dusts Off Its Massive Vinyl Collection

“Checking out the Toronto Reference Library’s massive vinyl-record collection is about as convenient as lugging a crate full of 12-inch singles to a party. To listen to any of the public institution’s more than 15,000 slabs of wax, visitors need a librarian at the fifth-floor info desk to retrieve whatever they’re looking for from rows of records cordoned off nearby. After filling out a form that asks for a name, address, and phone number, listeners can retreat, record in hand, to one of two cubicles that house a plastic turntable and headphones.” (via Thump)

The three-day sale of 22,000 records started Thursday. It’s intended to clear out space and to raise money for future acquisitions and for preserving the library’s collection, curator Jonathan Hiam said.” (via The Associated Press)
