How do our super patrons use the library? They take advantage of all we have to offer, of course! The library offers a diverse amount of services, but today we’ll be talking specifically about how Super Music Lovers use the library. As a music lover myself, I know the library might not always be the first thing we think of to satisfy our music needs, but the library offers several great musical resources!
With just your library card, you can access Freegal, our music-streaming service that gives you access to five hours of ad-free music every day. Freegal has put together some playlists to choose from, or you can make your own playlists from the music available. This site also allows you to download three songs each week for free, and that's it: you own it. You can play it anytime from your music player on your phone or computer.
Music on CD and Sheet Music you can check out
The Provo Library has thousands of albums on CD! We purchase CDs from a wide variety of genres and artists, and CDs have no fee to check out. We also have a growing collection of sheet music with hot titles like the complete libretto of the Broadway musical HAMILTON, and music from the motion picture THE GREATEST SHOWMAN.
Monday Night Performances
There’s nothing quite like feeling the energy of a live performance. Luckily, performers and musicians from our community regularly come to perform at our library. Some of our seasonal performances, such as the Utah Valley Handbell Ringers each December, are a community tradition! These performances are always free, and you can see our upcoming schedule on our Monday Night @ the Library page.
The Basement Creative Lab audiovisual production space
Being a lover of music goes hand in hand with being a creator of music, when your passion pushes you to participate rather than simply enjoy! Our new Basement Creative Lab provides a space for creators looking for a space to record sound and video, supplied with equipment and editing stations that is free for Provo residents to use. All you have to do to use it is take our free “Intro to Studio Production” class to get oriented with our equipment. We also periodically offer specialized classes on subjects like Audio Production. More information and registration for our classes can be done on our Basement Creative Lab page.
