“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: https://goo.gl/Wtv8Iq
Cheers 4 Lethbridge is a new initiative designed to encourage everyone to work together to make Lethbridge an amazing city for all of us to enjoy.
“We’re asking everyone to do 4 things that will make a positive difference, big or small, and then spread the word about the great things they have done,” says Terra Plato, CEO of the Lethbridge Public Library. “Volunteer, pick up litter or participate in a project, there are so many simple ways that people can make a positive difference in their community.”
