Sale ‘music’ to library’s ears
The Bethlehem Area Public Library’s one day music sale Feb. 17 drew a huge crowd to the Bob Cohen Room and raised $3,925 to help renovate this former children’s library space into a multi-use community room. Fueled by a donation of 20,000 music CDs and another collection of vinyl record albums, the sale also included twenty local vendors who offered their own CDs, tee shirts, collectibles and more. Laurel Stone, the library’s book sale coordinator, called the event “very successful,” so much so that many who came were asking about another event like this one being held in the future. Shamus McGroggan of Tape Swap Radio coordinated scheduling of the local vendors saying he “had five or six in mind” initially. McGroggan said that he then boosted the event on Facebook looking for a mix that would be successful and compliment the music sale.
