From the Hennepin County Public Library:
Discover Minnesota musicians on MnSpin, Hennepin County Library’s new music streaming and download platform that will give music lovers and seekers access to 50-plus curated albums by local artists and groups.
Inspired by models already cranking on library websites based in places like Seattle, Portland and Nashville, Hennepin County Library worked with Madison-based MUSICat to create a platform to accept contributions from musicians.
Your Hennepin County Library card is a ticket to stream or download music from MnSpin at no cost; and music lovers everywhere can discover and stream music created in our hometowns.
The Friends of the Hennepin County Library, the system’s funding partner, provided a $200 per-album stipend for each act.
