The shelving for our Music CDs has arrived and we have begun to make them available to the public. As of today, November 2, most of the discs are still in storage. But we’re going to work as fast as we can to get them back onto the shelves.

The NEW Music CDs are located on the 1st Floor in front of the elevator. The rest of our collection is upstairs by the Books on CDs.

We’re sorry it took so long.
