Sneak peek at vinyl treats

Our vinyl launch party is just one week away! Make sure you join our Facebook event so you get all the details of our guest panel, giveaways and more. We thought we would give you a sneak peek at some of the vinyl-related goodies we’ve acquired for the collection, so take a look at the images below.

Wellington Vinyl

First up, some of our Wellington vinyl picks. We also have a Facebook page dedicated to sharing local music and bringing the Wellington Music community together. It’s a pretty new page, but already quite active. Find it here.

Vinyl display

Next is our exciting display of artwork from some of the records in our library collection! These will eventually adorn the vinyl corner of our AV area, but for now you can see them when you enter the Central library.

Satchels

These are our carrying satchels which you’ll be able to use to carry your borrowed items home in. They’re based on the design we used last time we had a vinyl collection, so it may look familiar to some of you.

Turntable

And lastly, our pride and joy, our new turntable! Ooh, so shiny.

We can’t wait to see you at the party! We’ve got more vinyl staff picks coming up in the next week, so stay tuned.

Vinyl collection launch party!

They say a good wine matures with age and the same could be said for a good record. Analogue is back and our new vinyl collection will be launched via a party on the afternoon of Saturday the 24th of September between 12:00 and 4:00pm. You can expect copious giveaways, informative and entertaining talks and non-stop music!

Here’s how it will happen:

12 – 1pm – Turn up and listen to the music as our DJs play their favourite tracks, or select a song you want played from our new collection. Be in with a chance to win dozens of free album download codes.

1 – 2.30pm – Vinyl panel discussion with journalist and musician Nick Bollinger, music reviewer and vinyl lover Grant Smithies, musician and vinyl devotee Liz Matthews of Hex, and Lisa Brown of Slowboat Records.

2.30 – 4.00pm – More music from our DJ’s, prizes, and chances to suggest your favourite music from our collection. Be the first to take home vinyl from the collection in our ‘new’ cardboard satchels.

See you there!
