Expand knowledge, love of music with GRRL

We have music here at Great River Regional Library.

A lot of music.

In fact, we have one of the most comprehensive collections of albums anywhere in the state of Minnesota.

From rock to blues, R&B to classical, jazz to world, and everything in between – if you can think of it, the chances are high we’ve got it in our collection.

And, as per usual, if your GRRL branch doesn’t have something you want, we can almost certainly track it down for you.

Like everything else here at GRRL, our growing collection is free to library card holders. The fear of buyer’s remorse doesn’t need to prevent you from sampling something brand new.

We’ve curated a few thematic lists to remind you of some great albums you may know and inspire you to check out something intriguing that you’ve never heard of. Here are a few to get you going:
