Coming June 7: The “Local Music Project”

by on June 4th, 2012

The Iowa City Public Library is very excited for the upcoming launch of an innovative and first-of-its-kind service. ICPL has begun leasing rights from local musicians for local library cardholders to download and keep available recordings from local musicians. We will launch the “Local Music Project” this Thursday, June 7, 2012.

If you have a library card and password, and live in Iowa City or an area that contracts with us (Iowa City, rural Johnson County, Hills or University Heights) you can download this music. You own it forever.

We’ve dealt directly with musicians who have the rights to offer their music as part of the project. Our leases cover local material, sometimes out of print, or even live shows. One of the aims of the project is to encourage interest in local musicians. As a result of this exposure, we hope new fans will go to a local show around town or even purchase copies of more recent records from these musicians.

Stay tuned to our website later this week for the link for downloading this free local music.
