This article, Newton library’s local music collection is a huge hit by Boston Herald's Jed Gottlieb and it's about an emerging trend of libraries and local music meeting up at the last place most would think to look -- Public Libraries. However it's so new that many Cities are unaware that their own libraries even could be host to the local musician and I believe this is about to change.
For one, I happen to know quite a bit about this since my company AltavozEntmt has been partnering with two companies for the last three years to do just this and this channel has now been formalized into our our CityMusicDeal (TM) and very soon a new deal that will reach into each and every community in the US and bring full circle the the artists, communities and libraries.
I've always believed that where you buy or consume music is not as important as the fact that consumers and fans are still very interested in music and every TechDork that has ever been shot down in a band and thought that they would via Technology have the upper hand just doesn't understand the love affair that we have with music and it's perhaps the deepest connection we as humans share with the universe and mother nature.
Now for any Artists Bands or Labels that are wondering how they can get into their local librarians then look no further than Altavoz's DigitalDistributionDeal.com or PhysicalDistributionDeal.com
PS Digital is still below Physical in sales for those that keep count.
