Vinyl-Only Public Library Opens in London
A vinyl-only music library has opened doors in London, offering a huge collection of records for loan for the first time. The Vinyl Library was founded by two London DJs, Sophie Austin and Elly Rendall, who have recruited volunteers to help run the not-for-profit store. The catalog of records was kindly donated by the public, with some contributions coming from as far as New Orleans. "We were DJing UK garage sets and we wanted to build up our vinyl collection," said co-founder Sophie Austin (via NME). "We didn't have the budget to buy a whole new collections, there's no vinyl in libraries any more and we have quite eclectic tastes so we thought: 'Wouldn't it be great to have a vinyl library?' She continued: "People can share their knowledge with people who are new to vinyl [...] We like the idea of getting people tactile with a piece of vinyl and getting everyone connected to that again." Their next mission is to introduce DJ lessons to the library, and then to start screening music documentaries. If you live near the Vinyl Library in Stoke Newington, London, you can visit between 11am-9pm from Monday to Sunday where you can register to borrow records for as little as £1.
