Vinyl records available to borrow from the Kitchener Public Library


Music lovers can now borrow vinyl records from the Kitchener Public Library (KPL).

“We have a brand new vinyl collection here, which includes over 150 tracks from rock, jazz, hip hop, blues and more,” said Matt MacKinnon of KPL. “An excellent selection to start with for audio enthusiasts and people who love music in general.”

Sukh Binning helped organize the library’s collection and says music offers a great escape from the world.

“Being able to put headphones on and listen to analog music, it’s actually quite meditative,” Binning said.

Records can be expensive, and KPL officials said they hope having records available on loan will help people fall in love with the music.

“Holding a record allows people to have more of a connection with the music they listen to,” Binning said.

People can borrow up to two discs at a time, for a week. Anyone who doesn’t have a record player at home can listen at the Central Library’s Heffner Studio.

KPL’s complete record collection is available here.
