Murray’s Story - Celebrating our 1st Anniversary of Putting Vinyl Back on the Shelves

 “Put Your Records On, Play Me a Song” In February of 2015, The Lethbridge Library put an amazing vinyl collection back on its shelves and three listening stations were set up at the Main Branch.  CKXU 88.3 FM collaborated with the Library to offer a Vinyl Revival Experience to everyone. Libraries offer endless resources and programs and often an individual story  unfolds behind the programs, resources and experiences.  It touches our heart and creates turning points and connections that no one could have foreseen.  Here’s Murray’s story:
