One of our Summer Reading themes is Explore Music, and Adults participating in summer reading can earn a Badge (and an entry into one of our grand prize drawings), by completing any two of the four Activities for the Explore Music Badge. One of those Activities is to listen to an album you check out from the library. You can come in and grab a CD, or you can use our streaming service Hoopla Digital.

If you’re wondering what to listen to, I’ve put together an eclectic mix of albums below, one of which might be up your alley. To complete you Activity, though, you are under no obligation to listen to something from this list.

Happy listening!
