Seattle Public Library Now Offers KEXP Live Performances!

Patrons of the Seattle Public Library now have even more options when it comes to listening to music, because, as of today, the library offers streams of KEXP Live Performances as part of their catalog! The first partnership of its kind between a library and a radio station, Seattle City Librarian Marcellus Turner said that the partnership will help patrons discover new music that they may not have otherwise discovered. “We see the KEXP offerings as an added bonus to our music collection,” Turner said. “Patrons searching a catalog for a particular CD… might also discover the band’s live performances from KEXP.”

With approximately 3,200 live in-studio performances recorded, the recordings will be added to the catalog in groups of about 200 at regular intervals each year. Among others, performances by Swervedriver, Yellow Ostrich, and First Aid Kit are now available. Patrons do not need a library card to access the recordings.
