DORR TOWNSHIP LIBRARY TO OFFER DOWNLOADABLE MUSIC FROM THEIR WEBSITE
June 24, 2001 Dorr Township Library has joined Library Ideas’ network of Public Library websites that offer access to songs from Sony Music’s catalog of legendary artists.
The service will allow the Dorr Township Library to increase the size and diversity of its collection by offering access to hundreds of thousands of songs.
Under the terms of the agreement, registered card holders of the Dorr Township Library can download a select number of Sony Music tracks in the MP3 format each month at no direct cost via www.dorrlibrary.michlibrary.org. The library will underwrite the purchase of the music.
Other libraries participating in the launch include the Princeton (NJ) Public Library, Maricopa County Library District (AZ), Orange County Public Library (FL), Nashville Public Library (TN) and Fairfield Public Library (CT).
This service delivers great music, compatibility with lots of devices and simplicity of use. It will be incredibly popular with our patrons and will help the library in marketing all its services to the community.
“Sony Music has an incredibly expansive and popular catalog and we are really excited to partner with them on this, a very important product for libraries,” said Brian Downing, co-founder of Library Ideas. “A library is a focal point of the community that requires many tools to excite people about library resources. More than anything, that is the reason for the service.”
