Music and Public Libraries, part 2

Just about every decent-sized town here in Sweden has a good-sized collection of CDs in its public library. It's a relatively recent phenomenon - until about 1990 barely any libraries had music at all, and it was only five or six years ago that it really took off.

Often, the quality and choice is excellent, with high-production-value compilations and box sets, critically acclaimed albums, and a decent mix of genres in some sort of attempt at reaching out to a broad demographic. I've often been surprised at what I've found - near my work experience placement is a library, for instance, with everything from American Head Charge to Etta James, from Richard Hell to Lady Saw.

What's it like in other countries? I know Hull city library had a well decent CD collection. What's it like where you live?

The city library has a Mediathek, which used to be quite good about 10 years ago.

I haven't been listening to any music since.
