Interested in collecting vinyl? Clear your calendar for this Friday. The Music Library has in the process of filtering out its LP collection, and Everything. Must. Go.

From 10am–2pm on Friday, April 26th, the Music Library will be selling LPs by the bagful outside of Bender Library. The prices will go down over the course of the day: first picks will cost $3 per bag, but by the last hour, everything is free!

$3 for a full bag of vinyl is an absolute steal. This is the sort of deal that you’d expect someone to joke about. If you’re looking for new records, this is a sale you won’t want to miss.

We’re at the end of our purchasing season, so we’re adding one more batch of new titles for the semester. We have a couple Oscar nominees (Les Misérables, Anna Karenina, Life of Pi, and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey), a few enlightening documentaries (including biographies of famous composers and an economist), some movies we probably should’ve had by now (the first Ice Age and The Ring), and a few… weird ones. Anyone up for Pocahontas II?

Point being, it was an interesting month.
